Sneak Preview: Fairfax Fine Arts Festival

One of the panels to be under the tent
Tops on my (and Randy's) to do list is preparing for this weekend's Fairfax Fine Art Festival. The job ahead is daunting. We purchased a tent ... and have to learn to put it up. I've been selecting paintings and trying them on the screens that take up 3/4 of our family room. It poured, poured, poured rain all day ... so the "dry run" in set up is postponed until tomorrow.

I'm having a heck of a time figuring out what's in/what's not.

Normal angst times three or four.

My favorite panel at the moment that will definitely be there this Saturday and Sunday, May 3 & 4 in Fairfax Corners, VA for the show includes three new, two week old or less painting from Florence and Venice, Italy. Here it is. My Italian wall.

Randy has been working on my display ... and it is outstanding. A gorgeous outdoor gallery in the making!

I hope to see you this weekend. Bring friends (if you want), spread the word ...
