"Glorious May" oil 14" x 7 1/2"

$200 & $10 s&h

We celebrated the 36th annual North River Arts Festival this weekend, Friday night through Sunday afternoon. I have been involved in the last twenty or so, and have been painting out in the crowd for perhaps a dozen.  Each year, including this one,  feels fresh, exciting, what I call "the good kind of exhausting".  

This morning we attended the Memorial Day parade, gathering to honor men and women who gave their lives for our country.  As the high school marching band passed, I reminded my daughter (for the umpteenth time) that I love the sound of a marching band.  I love parades, and their pageantry.  Our arts festival is its own type of parade, combining music, people watching, color, vignettes, charm, variety, laughter, and the joy of the culmination of months of intensive labor ... all while I'm working at my easel.  Glorious May!
