art in the sun
Had a nice, artsy day today... this is the Lakefront Art Festival Weekend, and even tho my usual art partner was busy today with her manfriend ('member this pic?) - and Mumsy was up to it (but I told her that I just planned on doing a quick browse around), I wound up going down there myself.
There wasn't a ton of stuff that I fell madly in love with, although Jay Long's work was pretty cool - made me smile. I may still purchase a print from his site...
You know what was pretty neat though? I saw an artist's name and work that I knew I recognized from somewhere - I was thinking EBSQ, but as I talked to him, I discovered that I recognized him from eMOMA! Of course! Lori, maybe you know him? Kreg Yingst? So that was pretty cool.
Ultimately, I bought a print from Tracy Gallup. This pic doesn't do it justice of course. The plastic wrap is still on it, and the print itself is about 8 x 10, with an 18 x 24 mat. I love the little "starman" floating in the sky. And I bought a t-shirt of course... have to buy the yearly event t-shirt.
So it was a good day. Then, on my way home, I decided to stop at Alterra for coffee, and who should call me but Jennie, wondering if I was still down there. So she and Dave walked down to meet me, and we sat and talked for a bit. We're all meeting there tomorrow for Daddy's Day. I just hope it's nice out 'cos hubby and I would like to take the bike. We'll see... the weather is just so damned weird these days! (40's tonite?!!)
Hope you're all having a great weekend as well.
