getting ready...

working into the evening feet
painting in pajamas...

i'm in the midst of prep for the Paradise City Arts Festival which is this coming weekend here in Northampton, MA. it's one of the biggest shows of the year for me, and even though this is my 4th fall being a part of it, it's always a frantic rush to get everything ready right before. tomorrow i'll take the whole afternoon to set up my booth space with my dad (i'm so lucky!), we basically will build it from scratch so that by saturday morning it will look like a nice little gallery space to show my work. i'll spend most of the day on friday hanging freshly painted paintings and arranging things for the weekend, which is my favorite part of the set-up. the show is 3 full days and it's a lot of work! but, i'm really looking forward to seeing friends and favorite customers come through my booth for a look and a visit!
if you are in new england, come on by, it's so worth the trip! an amazing event, full of wonderful art and crafts, food and fun... you'll find me (sitting pretty and smiling...) in booth #145.

i'll report in on the flip side!
