This Feels Good!

OK... For the first time in 6 years, I didn't spend yesterday getting set up for the Rockport Center For The Arts Fourth of July Art Festival! And guess what? It DOES feel good...

Setting up and breaking down my display tents were always the hardest on me. And as I got older, it became more and more like hard work. It was the in-between of those two activities I loved. 

I always enjoyed having the patrons come by to look at my art. It was fun to watch people's reactions to my display. Normally I never get to meet my patrons. I sell my art in galleries I don't own. The gallery owner usually calls and says they have sold one of pieces and I never know the buyers. 

So today I'm going to be a patron myself. I'll go over to the Festival and casually walk around. I'm looking forward to talking with the artists and maybe even buying a piece of two! Much more fun...
