Narragansett Art Festival 2008

Just wanted to post a quick recap of how the weekend went! I am home, the cars are unloaded, and I'm exhausted & badly need a shower, so I'll keep it short. :-)

We had gorgeous weather, despite an ominous forecast of 80% chance of rain on Sunday! I met some wonderful people and amazing artists, I'll probably do a post later this week with some names and website links. I had a lot of fun sharing a booth with the illustrious Julie Beck, and both my husband and my friend Amber were super helpful in keeping me company, going on lunch runs, and generally being awesome. Thanks to all of you who stopped by, it was a treat to see you! And a special thanks to my buyers, I am so thrilled that my work found some good homes.

Perhaps the most exciting news of my weekend was that I received a second place ribbon in the photography category! (The award is for the body of work as a whole, not for just one image.) I believe the award is actually either a second and a half place, or a tie for third. It was a little confusing. The judges had such a hard time deciding that they gave out an extra prize this year. I was honored to receive it, regardless!



I think that's about all I've got for tonight! I hope everyone out there had a great weekend, with something special sprinkled in!
