These are Moses' latest pictures. I think that he is becoming a little camera shy. I had to get him out of the box several times before he would sit still for his photo op.
This is one of my latest pieces. I call him "Patch". His head opens up to reveal a circuit board and a light bulb is inside of it that reads "Inspiration" along with a ball that says "Dream"
|This is the inside of Patch's box. It has a clay heart, gears, a ball that says love and his own story.|
This is a picture of Alma. She was a vendor at the Melrose show. She is such a sweetie. You never know what her attire will be. In this photo, she was a Zulu Princess.
This is a picture of the Big House at Melrose. This plantation was established in 1785. It is truly beautiful.
I had a really good show at Melrose. I always love going there. It is one of my favorites. We got there on a Friday evening. They had a huge supper for the vendors. Chicken, brisket, fruit salad, dirty rice, potato salad.........and so on. And, for dessert there was banana pudding, fudge brownies, cakes, pies, fruits. It was so delicious (are you hungry yet?). We couldn't get right up on our spot with the truck because of the large oak trees. They are trying to protect the root system and didn't want anyone driving on them. We had to cart everything in. We set up the tent and the grid walls and the tables, and kept the art boxed and on top of the tables. We put up the sidewalls and left. That night, it poured. And it didn't just pour for a little while...........It rained a monsoon for HOURS. I guess that the rain settled over Natchitoches and decided to stay there because I listened to it rain most of the night. It finally stopped at about 3 am. I was just sick. I thought that most of my art was probably soaked. After all, the tents are water resistant, not water proof. The next morning driving into the plantation we seen tents toppled over and blown across the yard and I had a terrible feeling in the pit of my stomach. I didn't want to see my tent or worse, my art. But, to my surprise the tent did phenomenally well. Two of my pieces got damp but all of the other pieces were dry. I actually had a great show. The jewelry that I made sold very well and I ended up with some orders for some custom mixed media angels. I have one more show to do in May and then no more until the fall.
Have a great day!! F.
