a tale of two cities...

Topics: des moines, ia, stone arch art fair, talbot street art fair, the other art fair, watercolor...outside…

indianapolis and minneapolis...our previous two art fairs were talbot street in indy and stone arch in minneapolis. both events were blessed with pretty good weather and they both drew big crowds. after our "lost weekend" in was nice to actually have patrons filling the walkways in front of our booth for these past two events. stone arch seemed to have the bigger crowds but for us the show at talbot was one of our better shows of 2009. we had three additions to the "peg-heads" (patrons purchasing large original works) and we really appreciate their well as the support of anyone who stopped by and bought some art or who simply wanted to chat about the art. thanks for coming out to the festival. this weekend we will be in des moines, iowa...and its a big art festival weekend there. there are two big events taking is downtown...and "the other art festival" is taking place at the iowa state fairgrounds and is being held no worries about the weather for us as we will be located indoors in the air conditioned show site. actually the state fairgrounds is being used as a park and ride lot for the downtown show with shuttle bus service between the two shows... this should make it easier for patrons to take in both art fairs...we hope to see many folks out and about and enjoying the art fairs this weekend. I've included a pic of peggys newest painting that we will have at the show this weekend. thanks for reading...

Hi Peggy and Bruce, So glad you had such a good show in Indy. Wish I could have been there to say Hi. Indy is my hometown-where my Mom still lives and I visit 4 times a year. Love your new painting-an updated "fractured branch". Peggy, MaryAnn broke her leg when she got to Conn. and has had complications. Won't be walking anytime soon. Good luck with all the rest of your shows-don't know how you have time to paint. See you next winter. K
