Instead of spending Mother’s Day weekend doing what I love, working in the garden and hanging out with the kids (while trying to convince them that working in the garden IS fun) I spent my Saturday and Sunday working two shows. Saturday’s show was a neighborhood show featuring the works of the Glenview neighborhood. It was a friendly and relaxing show. There was a wide representation of ages and media present. I met an 87 year old woman who painted the most exquisite flowers I’d ever seen. I also got to hang out with some good friends who were also exhibiting.
Sunday morning, after I ate up a plateful of homemade beignets from the kids, I went to Jack London Square to set up for the Patchwork show. This show seems to be growing nicely and I was happy to participate in it. Extra bonus was that I was able to switch booth spaces on the fly to a much nicer one that had way more light. I also inherited two fabulous booth neighbors who kept me in good company all throughout the day.
Oh! there was also a photo booth. Not analog, sadly, but it was surprisingly good. Here are a few we collected. Thank you Magnolia Photo booth for coming out and taking pictures of us!
