Time in Wickford, Rhode Island

Since I'm a bit zonked from a full, exciting weekend (and life), here's again a quick post. My debut at the Wickford Fine Art Festival (its 52nd year) was a thrilling success. I LOVE it here!! Four folks have officially become new collectors of my work and I'd bet many, many more will at least be great enthusiasts. What an amazing weekend.

Wonderful visitors.

As a tradition to continue, on Friday, pre-tent setup I painted in Wickford Harbor. Painting, discovery, meeting you is what this is all about.

Among stiff competition, those hours were my favorites. "Wickford Harbor (Logan's View)" was one of the four paintings that headed to new homes with happy owners.  Pretty darn cool.

What an amazing place. Wonderful  people. Wonderful memories.  Great fellow artists. Thank you!

Westport Fine Arts Festival is next weekend. Can it hold a candle to this?
