The star of the show






















The Fresh Paint Art Festival was this past weekend - the fine woman above was the star of the show.  Everyone enjoyed my "Cabinet Card Curiosities" and many commented on the grand dame of the installation.  I was starting to think that she would be left behind - but by Sunday afternoon, she was taken home by a woman who adored her!

As part of the event, each artist was to demonstrate some aspect of their craft at their booth.  For the second straight year, I had a participatory activity in which people could make their own mini-collage.  Using cardboard as its base, I provided scissors, glue, crayons and two big tubs of assorted scrap/ephemera/trimmings for inspiration.  I wanted to demonstrate that collage doesn't take any fancy tools or expensive materials - you just have to be willing to jump in and give it a try.  Here are some of the newly minted artists with their creations - I love how everyone looks so proud!
Seems as if summer is winding down...time to start thinking about fall and holiday art shows...I'll keep you posted!
