A big thank you all who stopped by to say hello at Sailfest on Saturday. Your visit, despite the wet weather ,was truly appreciated! And a big, big thanks to every person who offered praise for my work or bought something for themselves, friends, or family! Maybe it was the spontaneous "rainy day" sale on everything for sale--whatever, I sold many more photos than I expected and the buyers and I were both happy--a rare win/win!
The forecast was for clearing by 11 am--but it kept raining until 2:30. Still, there were a good number of people who came out despite the rain, and the numbers grew as the rain tapered off. This season has been a very tough one for outdoor festivals. The Art Stroll, which I mentioned in my last post, was cancelled due to the dangerous heat and the threat of thunderstorms. The storms never came but the heat was relentless!! Let's hope Mother Nature gives us a break for the rest of the year!
If you missed me at Sailfest or at the Art Stroll, do not worry. I will be at other events in the coming months. Next will be the Artists Mart on Saturday, October 13th, sponsored by the Ocean County Artists Guild at the Guild on the corner of Ocean Avenue and Chestnut Streets in Island Heights. It will run from 10 am to 5 pm, with artists working in a variety of mediums displaying their work both inside and outside the Guild.
The following week, on October 20th, will be the Toms River Harvest Arts Festival in Downtown Toms River, on Washington Street, by the Ocean County Library. It also runs from 10 am to 5 pm. More on this and other events in future blogs.
Anyway, thanks again for stopping by yesterday. If you were unable to do so, please come to one of my future events and say Hello!
