Here are some photos from the Grant Park Summershade Festival. As you can see I finally have my booth together with real walls. I custom sewed the fabric to stretch over the mesh panels. I'm glad I went with the set up where you have the door out the back (or I could have it on either side) it made it convenient to put all my stuff out of sight but within reach. I just had to make sure I didn't slip down the ravine behind me when I was rummaging through my tubs.
I did sell several items, a lot of prints of my work, which I printed at home off my inkjet printer. There are some new technologies that are available where you can print onto canvas, thus making a homemade giclee print that looks like a little painting. People really liked the looks of them. I did sell one original painting and I got a lot of really great feedback. When my artwork caught someone's eye they just started smiling, stammered and then couldn't help but come in and smile bigger. They really seem to enjoy the colors, the rhythm, the depth perception issues and the generally happiness of my work. Yea!
