Shows, Shows and More Shows and a Wip

Summer is over and the farmer's markets with them. I cannot say that they were very profitable, but they were interesting. However, I have upcoming shows:

Sept 28 and 29...Coastal Artisans, D'Lake School Lincoln City (Juried)

Oct 6 and 7...Pleine Air Festival, Taft District, Lincoln City

Oct 11-14...Eugene Home Show! (Juried)

Nov 2 and 3, Crafts on the Coast (Juried)

Dec 1 and 2, Elks Christmas

Dec 11 and 12, Old Geezers (Juried)

I'm actually picking up a little work and framing jobs to the tune of about one a week. Just did some business cards for someone.

I have two commissions to finish and am going to post a pastel I've been playing with.

Gypsy Vanner

Created for a friend who does a lot of travelling. It's an ACEO size, but done on the 5x7 ampersand board. I'll try to get a better scan of it later.

A Day at the Renaissance Festival

I have other work to finish, but had to slip this one in last night. I went to the Renaissance Festival yesterday. I haven't been to one in a couple of years. It was wonderful! Lots of wonderful knights on horseback, snorting destriers, ladies in velvets and silks, an absolutely wonderful day! I took quite a few pictures but this knight was soooo handsome, and of course, he was on a black gelding with his silver armor. What more could you ask for.

This piece is for sale, I'm taking it down to be framed shortly.
