what I've been up to!

 Hi everyone - I'm sure you're wondering why I haven't been posting. 
I've been too busy getting ready for the Balloon Fiesta Show!.
I have lots of small paintings and a few larger pieces for the Balloon Fiesta and I hope you will all come and to visit me, say hello and watch the spectacular balloons.

I must tell, you, it has been so exciting already, just being down on the field and thinking about what's going to be happening this weekend.

The photo above is where my booth will be - in the big merchandise tent right in front of the grassy field where the balloons take off. I could not have a better spot!

 This is the great group of people that I had put up my walls, paper, and lights.
They were so quick and efficient.

 This is the huge sign in the Balloon Merchandise tent right next to my booth.
They will be selling my poster as well as posters from the past few years; 
Amado Pena, Daryl Willison, David Welch, etc.
They are already out of the t-shirts with my poster on them.
They do still have mugs.

 This is after my paper has been put up and they are doing the lighting.
The paper looks brown but is actually black.

 This is after the booth is complete.
 We added the beautiful twinkly lights and brought in the tables, chairs, benches, etc.
Basically all the things you need to have an art exhibition.
Except for the paintings - that's tomorrow and Friday.

If you don't have any of my paintings yet, this is a great time to start your collection.

I will be doing no shows in 2013.
