Summer story

It's been awhile since the last post, but a short update of the summer includes attending 3 juried art shows in June.

The Saint Louis "Art and Air" proved to be a beautiful show with high-quality arts and crafts, but plagued by thunderstorms and steamy heat.

Our favorite show, Talbot Street in Indianapolis, IN was a perfect weekend with huge crowds and good sales on Saturday.  Our Pooch Porto Pottie was a hit, and we've started working on two commissions based on the first design.

Art Fair on the Square here in Bloomington, IN was another show threatened by rain, but with the help of family, we were packed up and away before the rain hit.  It's always nice doing a show at home, and we look forward to seeing  friends and neighbors at the Fourth Street Festival of the Arts and Crafts Labor day weekend (August 30-31)

Currently I'm working on 4 window shutters for a fellow artist who has been waiting patiently to add some "mosaic zing" to the front of her house.  Then, I'm off to Michigan to pick up glass, and work with Susie, from Fiber Arts Furniture, on a set of chairs for a special client.  I hope to have photos in the next post.  Have a Happy Summer!
