Four days left out at the State Fair. It’s been a busy week. Yesterday was dollar day, so it was the most crowded day so far. We had a downpour early in the afternoon, but it didn’t scare anyone away. I sold the painting that I posted a couple of days ago along with another painting I completed out there. I have one more that I did that I need to photograph today. The other one was sold before I had the chance to take a picture of it. This has been a very successful show for me, which has been very nice. I needed the confidence boost!
I’m taking the day off on Monday, but plan on putting up some new listings on Tuesday. Once the fair is over I plan on only one more weekend out at the outdoor market for Balloon Fiesta weekend. Then it’s inside for the rest of the winter. Time to paint my heart out and get ready for Christmas time.
I will try to post my other painting sometime today if I can get the signal long enough and strong enough. I have also painted a few more boxes that I need to photograph. I sold one without getting a photo of it. Wouldn’t you know it was my favorite one! I may have to paint another one like it to keep!
In other news, my oldest son called recently to tell me that he’s looking into joining the Air Force. I’m proud of him for his patriotism, he was brought up to be patriotic, but I fear for him being in the military in a time of war. Luckily, the Air Force is probably the safest branch for him to join. I’m being supportive because I know that flying is his one big dream. As a mom, I just can’t help but want to keep him from it. However, being a veteran of the US Army, I know it will be the best thing he can do for himself. I’ll just keep hoping and praying that he won’t ever be in harms way. Just like every other mom of a service member. I guess it just gives me more reason to promote peace.
