We are driving back from Chicago, somewhere in Kentucky right now. You get to this neck of the woods and the roads turn into ribbons. Up and down hills, in between mountains. Where as Indiana is flat as a pancake with amaricana vistas dotted by isolated farms. Lately, I keep exclaiming to myself, “ man, what a beautiful country this is”.... at least physically, right now. I don’t mind these long drives, well, my back does, but I kind of love the vistas. 57th St. Art Fair weather was cold and cloudy on Saturday and sunny and breezy on Sunday, the best kind of weather. I was in the same spot again between Joel, a wonderful photographer that shoots pics of rescued animals and abandon slave dwellings... one of the nicest people I have ever been lucky enough to be next to. On the other side was the irrassable and funny as hell fiber artist Marina.... Between the company of these two artists, we had such a fun time. And I got to see Leia Zumbro, who is one of the coolest artist’s on the planet and a jewelry artist extraordinaire. The show started out good with 2 of my favorite Chicago patron’s wanting one of my large paintings... unfortunately, it was a bit too large for the space they needed it for, so I have a new commission to do in the same color format... But, other than that, I mostly sold small quote paintings. I’m not upset, I am glad that I have those when bigger work still hangs in my booth. But I had quite a lot of people who knew I would be at Old Town this next weekend and took pictures.... So, you can never tell, I could see them there. I hope so because as much as I enjoy this travel stuff, when it come to going back to the same city 2 weeks in a row.... I wish Scotty could beam me and my work there....Maybe next year we will stay for a week in the Windy City in between, but this year it’s back to Tennessee to get some things completed for this weeks coming show. If you are living or hanging around Chitown next weekend the show runs Saturday and Sunday from 10 until 5 each day. I’m in booth 210. Come see all my new work.... No pressure.
