Chicago rocked, despite the unbelievable winds and rain.  Needless to say, I got to witness the integrity of my tent first hand as John and I huddled inside during the onslaught.  

We are headed to Nashville this week, see the sidebar for details.  The show is in Centennial Park. I am really looking forward to it; I'll be able to catch up with my friend Rhonda and another friend, Jeane Vogel, will also be there.  That makes it so nice, to hook up with other artists.  Chicago was like that too, lots of people I knew.  John and I had the opportunity to be with Mary Smith and her hubby Gary.  They are lots of fun and easy to hang out with.  We had many laughs; some of the "misery loves company" type regarding the weather.    
Here are some booth shots from recent shows - I've been changing the layout slightly each week, hanging the art differently.  I enjoy switching it around.  It is also interesting for me to see how the abstracts blend in with the rest of my work.  You can see I am still playing around with this green/yellow palette.  All the diptychs shown have already sold - in fact, everything on the back wall (in the first picture) sold this past weekend, yikes!  Needless to say I'm at work on some more abstracts but it's questionable whether any of them will be done before we leave.  I may have to varnish on the fly.


  1. I want a piece or two or 20 sooooo bad. sigh. I swear we think so much alike. All the stuff I picked up for Dave's father's day present was browns, yellows, and greens. I'm starting today. Hopefully it all turns out ok. Especially since I have no clue what I am doing. :)

    I love those big abstracts... I can see the outgrowth from the clay board techniques you taught at Artfest. Wish I could see these up close and in person!

  3. Thanks Mary Beth for the blog post! Yes we did have fun despite the weather...whew! I wish you much success in your future shows!

    Gorgeous booth! Very romantic husband who takes such good care of you! Mary Beth it is so great! My husband is the same and takes very good care of me, although gassing up my car is not one of the things he does. Rude awakening eh?

    Congratulations for every time you sell a big one!
