Greetings from Grapefest (Grapevine, Texas Art Festival)

Artist's Booth at GrapeFest, 2011

Greetings from GrapeFest 2011!  The Texas weather is windy and cool today, with very pleasing temperatures.  Thus begins a four-day art festival that will close Sunday at 6 p.m.  I’m proud to be set up in my new tent.  The EZ-Up pop-up tent proved its worth over the past three years, but I’m happy now to have a much sturdier structure that will resist the high Texas winds and occasional violent rain storms.

The season for art is an extremely busy one for me right now, with my One-Man Show opening last Saturday at the Weiler House Fine Art Gallery (http://www.weilerhousefineart.com) and lasting for a calendar month, along with this current Grapevine, Texas art festival, soon to be followed by the Fort Worth Music Festival and finally the Handley Blues Festival.

The Thursday crowds are rather thin, but Saturday and Sunday predict thousands of people pouring through the festival grounds.  So far today, the conversations with patrons have been pleasant, and I’m confident that the sales will pick up soon.  Whatever happens, its great to be outside on a day such as today, and if any of you readers are in the area the next few days, I would love to chat with you.

Thanks for reading.
