Swimming Up Stream

Here it is 4 days before the Krasl Art Fair. The studio looks like a disaster zone,  partially finished pieces cover the work tables, the floor is crunchy with glass and packing material sits in "stand by" mode.  What happened to June?  Why will I never be ready for the next show?
We always look forward to Krasl.  A beautiful show in Saint Joseph, MI, on the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan.  This year they celebrate their 50th anniversary.  What once started as a "clothesline" art fair in 1962 has now turned into one of the nicest, juried art fairs in the midwest.  I'm always excited when I get my "acceptance", but never seem to have enough time to finish all the work I want to share with the patrons.  Although, Bud (packer-boy) will disagree with me when it comes time to load all the new work in the van!
So, back to the studio to put the finishing touches on the new pieces.  'Hope you will stop by this weekend, July 9 10 a.m to 6 p.m. and July 10 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  We'll be in booth #181, just in front of the gardens across from the art center.
