The rain, hail and wind didn't disrupt a great day for the festival in Boulder. After the storms blew through the weather was great and so were the crowds. I stayed busy all day—too busy to take more than just these few pictures. Everyone was very pleased to meet the artist who designed the logo and shirts and hear about my work. I was thrilled to sell a few paintings and bunches of pendants, cards, magnets and prints. The Boulder festival will definitely be on my calendar for next year.
It's been a busy week. I got Rachel off to Guatemala for the week with Spanish students from school, after shopping and packing and more shopping. She'll be staying tonight and the next couple of days with a host family immersed in Guatemalan culture and Spanish language. What an amazing opportunity!
Now the focus of the next two days is finishing up my preparation for the Boulder Jewish Festival. I've got three new 12 x 12 paintings just varnished and drying. After adding the hanging hardware tomorrow I'll shoot them and then it'll just be the last odds and ends. I need to do a bit of shopping to find something fun to wear to the fair, along with packing up the tubs and double-checking my lists.
I'll post better pictures of these tomorrow after they've been shot.
I'm hoping for cool, sunny weather in Colorado this weekend and lots of people interested in Jewish art!
As usual it's been quite some time since I've made a blog post. But I thought this news was definitely worth sharing. The Boulder Jewish Festival held in Boulder, CO asked me to design the t-shirt for the 2008 event. I just heard back and they loved the design I submitted. It'll be unveiled at a big Boulder JCC event this coming weekend.
I was listening to Claudine Hellmuth on a smARTist Telesummit preview. She spoke about her successful blogging experience and how consistent blogging is important it is to an artist's career. I think for quite a few artists this is a challenging, but worthwhile task. I've got to get past the fear of sounding stupid and start getting involved to find a place in the artist blogging community.
I guess I've taken the first step. (For the probably 25th time.) :-)
