Little cherry blossom icons in my head
I'm staggering with post-market exhaustion right now...gone, gone away are my Saturday nights of fun for the rest of the year. It was a perfect warm day, and hordes of what my brother would call punters were out for the first day of the Farmers' Market. I realized two things:
1) I need to restructure my booth display, and
2) my market customers are the nicest people in the universe.
Last night's Paint Off was awfully fun too. A big room full of people creating art at the same time is a beautiful thing. There's a lot of good energy in that situation. Personally, I appreciate following the thread of thought that starts with seeing what I can make in a hour of concentrated work and ends with wondering why I don't do that more often. Here's the end result (acrylic on board), inspired by burgeoning springtime and these little cherry blossoms icons that have been running through my head lately. The extra-good bit is that my awesome friend Scott came to hang out with me at the event, and then he won a raffle ticket and ended up taking my painting home.
