Paintings and Pickles

View 1 of my farmer's market booth
Yesterday was spent at the Great Falls Farmer's Market under a tent, with rain coming and going, light traffic but very nice visits.  Back behind my "booth" was the pickle guy. Next to him, an accomplished baker with cookies that looked like hot dogs or hamburgers and beautiful petit fours. Next to me was a booth filled with beautiful embroidered shawls and jackets from Kashmir. Other booths held goat's milk products and soaps. Organic meats and dairy. The produce was gorgeous. Pretty zinnias. Farmer's market shopping accompanied by a harpist.

I thoroughly enjoyed the four hours spent there.  For a change, I didn't fuss over what to bring or hang too many pieces. There were 26 well-lit oil paintings arranged carefully in my solo show "Serendipity" right around the corner. The pieces I did bring, I was happy to show.

Today was spent enjoying the show at the annual 4-H Fair, mainly watching the horse games.  Met some pretty great rabbits, too. Fun ... and expect some animal appearances to come ... in paint.
