last of the season wrap up

Phew! The last of my outdoor shows is over and it was a doozy. We had a violent windstorm at the end of the day on Saturday and many artists' tents were completely destroyed. Luckily, my tent made it through undamaged, a bit drenched and windblown but okay.

Many thanks to the folks who braved the gusty weather and came out to the show. My next event will be indoors, safely warm and dry!

The sad destruction after the storm on was a wild afternoon!

Just finished a hand-painted bowl for The Colonial Theater in Keene. Local artists were asked to paint wooden bowls for a fundraiser auction. The theme for the event is Bolero and I thought my poppies with a rich dark background would be perfect. I also got to try out gold leafing--something I've been wanting to try for a while. A fun change of pace!
