Village Venture Afterglow

Well, another Village Venture has come and gone. It's hard to believe that I've been participating for 5 years now! Despite the lackluster economy and the 95+ degree temperatures - the day was a huge success! Not quite as large a crowd as usual (I think they get somewhere around 20,000 in attendance), but the folks that were there were ready to buy! And buy they did! I sold all my big pieces and lots of smaller ones. A huge thanks to all who stopped by the booth! The praise and accolades that I received are enough to feed my creativity for a long time! I never get tired of hearing the kind words and admiration from the collectors of my art.

In addition to several hundred amazing artists who participated in the event, there was a Halloween parade that showcases adorable kids and pets in costume. I just had to get a shot of this little fellow dressed as Jack Sparrow! I'm a sucker for a dog in a costume.

...now I've got to frantically start making enough for the Harvest Festival on December 5,6 and 7.
