If you receive my posts via email (as a subscriber), this message is one day delayed. This Saturday and Sunday, July 19 & 20, I'll be in Booth #85 in the Westport Fine Arts Festival in Westport, Connecticut.

Pre-setting up my tent, it was painting time on the  lawn of the Westport Historical Society, a park to honor World War Veterans. Heroes. So here's at least one of the paintings that will hanging under a tent this weekend. Wet paint warning.

I did need to pack up as a wedding rehearsal dinner would soon be taking place right behind this view.  Didn't want to crash the party.

Looks like gorgeous weather is ahead. The tent's ready for art.  Let's see.
