the art market...

(The beautiful historic Ormlie Lodge)

(my table in the middle of setting up)

(Mum and Dad taking over near the end while I had a bit of a look around)

I wasn't quite sure what I was taking a photo of as it was so bright I couldn't see my camera screen so I just had to point and shoot... but the photos didn't come out too bad.

That was an experience I would want to do again... the day of the market was the hottest in a long time, even as we arrived to set up early in the morning we were already sweating in the heat. There were so many fantastic displays with wonderful products, good to see so much local talent in one spot. I think the organisers can chalk their first art market up as a huge success. I sold out of a few things and ran out of business cards... and since the market I have had a few phone calls from buyers wanting more.

I have another 'hope floats' painting nearly finished and will post that later in the week as well as an updated version of the one from the post before.
