My Booth at Bellissimo Art Fair!

So..the art fair was this past Sunday.  It was hot!  In the 90's and humid.
But the rain held off until after the fair.  I had a fun time talking with people I hadn't seen in a long time and meeting new people.
Gervasi Vineyard was a beautiful venue and everyone there was more than accommodating throughout the whole day.
Since I hadn't done an art fair in about 35 years(!) this one was a good re-introduction to art fairs.  I made some sales and am happy to say that I am glad I participated.

People seemed to enjoy looking through the portfolio rack with my 2-sided collages.
These are artworks that  made a few years ago documenting the changes that occurred weekly on the farm where I live.  This piece (above) is from October showing a rainy day.
The reverse side (below) shows a brighter day with abstract kites flying in the air.

When I worked on these I would start with collage elements that I usually stitched onto the paper.  Of course the stitching affected the reverse side as well.  So I would flip the piece over, add some collage elements here as well as some paint.  Flip over again, collage, paint, stitch, flip until I was satisfied with each side.
I will be doing another art fair in November and now am really looking forward to it.
I want to send a big "THANK YOU" to all of my supporters, customers and friends for making Bellissimo Art Fair a positive and memorable event.  And a special thank you to my husband for his never ending encouragement.
