To and Fro

hodge podge
To sum up, I have had  upwards of several things going on.  I recently participated in Festival in the Pines – an Eau Claire arts and crafts show – utterly miserable. Not the show or the gathering itself, but the weather. It was 95 degrees plus Wisconsin Humidity most of the show. Fortunately, some brave souls attended and made it all worth being out in the oppressive heat. The next weekend, I celebrated a Labor Day with the parents. Being  awesome comes naturally to Clarks. It is in Rhinetown, home of the amazing,  where I fervently soaked up as much Northwoods as possible – luscious foliage and sexy sunsets are commonplace. In between, there have been several sketches which demand attention but I am clearly not hardcore enough to power through it and choose to sleep instead. Someday I will learn. Until then – OUTTIE!

Arts n Arts n Arts n Arts

open air festival
I have a solid excuse for not having any new arts this weekend. I had to part with some of them to make room for more at the Open Air Festival of the Arts with my booth buddy, Historic Maps, LLC. Next time I put on my seller hat, I have decided I will put more effort into labeling and building up a larger variety of images and perhaps sizes. It’s so hard to gauge what people will want, but then I suppose that’s what market research is for. I may also figure out how to use a smart phone so I can do fancy electronic monetary exchanges. Brilliantly, I managed to bring a cooler so I would stay hydrated. This little vixen is an anti-functioning human when not properly watered. Next big thing to start planning: Chalkfest 2013.  Until then I will be locked away, diabolically arting.
