Hot Day in Easton
Holy Cow was it hot in Easton today. I was there for a one-day outdoors exhibition of arts and crafts, in conjunction with the Easton Plein Air Arts Festival. The bank thermometer said that it was 107 degrees and I, for one, believe it. The trees were steaming in the little park across from Clay Bakers, but that did not deter the crowds who were in town for the festival.
Un the morning, the annual Quick Draw fast painting competition took place, and there were oil painters surrounding us as we set up for the exhibition. About twenty artists and craftspeople set up in the park.
I had a good day. Sales were slow, but I saw and talked to a number of students of mine, past and present. It was fun seeing Barb, Judy and the others in a setting outside of a classroom or studio.
I also met with several people who said that they would like to try painting in the studio on Tuesday night. Of course, they are invited, and I hope that they sho up soon. It's always fun seeing new painters in the group on Tuesday.
In the end, a painting was of mine
