a pic of our booth at appleton...it was a beautiful day...no need for a canopy...so we took advantage of all the natural light to show off peggys paintings. its another benefit we've enjoyed from the watercolor on canvas.
back in the day...when watercolors needed framing with matting and glass...great care was req'd to keep paintings under cover and out of the sun to prevent fading, glare and worse yet...condensation or(sweating)...which is water forming inside the glass and that is not good for art on paper.
with the watercolors painted on canvas...because they require no glass...we can set up our booth without the canopy roof and let the sun help show off the colors peggy uses in her work. so when the weather forecast has little or no rain chances we will usually try to leave the roof off...and let the sun shine in.
next up for us is the "firefly" art fair at the kneeland-walker house and gardens. the address is 7406 hillcrest drive in wauwatosa, wi. its our first time at this art fair and we are looking forward to it. the show dates are aug 2&3 and the hours are 10-5 both days and we will be in booth space #11. we hope you can come out to these beautiful and historic grounds and enjoy a day at the "firefly art fair".
thanks for reading...
