Get Ready, Set-Up and Show
We arrived in VA Beach yesterday for set-up, and then proceeded to turn the hotel room into a mini workshop, making last-minute table cloth and fabric bags with the sewing machine set up on the table and fabric spread out everywhere. (see pics) We used the hotel luggage cart to haul the paintings. (my mom's idea... I fussed at first, but then realized it was a good idea. ha!)
Other pics show some other boardwalk fest sights and some shots of my booth all set up for the first day today. Proud new paintings hang on the wall. (to be added to the website soon).
I took a dip in the pool midday... and returned to my booth after throwing some clothes over my wet swimsuit. every breeze turned into a refreshing gust... I sketched at my table and gazed out over the ocean from beneath my tent. beautiful weather was a clever blessing.
time for bed.
enjoy the pics.
sorry i don't have more stories. too tired now.
visitor quote of the day: "When you look at them (my paintings), they are just like, relaxing, you know? not so cluttered. they're nice."
Well Thank You Ma'am!
