OK, OK, OK.....it's been awhile since I've given you an update on my art festival ramblings. I've missed a few show reports, but I promise to give a complete (albeit, not in order) synopsis of the season once I return from my semi annual trip to the festivals in Tempe & Tucson AZ. I'll be retuning home the week before Christmas.
I did however, complete the last of my indoor shows this past weekend in Spokane Washington. It was the season finally of the Custer Arts & Crafts shows held both in Spokane and Pasco WA. and I'm happy to report that at least for reasonably priced art, sales were on par or even a little better than last year. I'm not going to say that the bad economy didn't hurt some artists sales, but the general consensus was positive from those artists I spoke with.
Well, it's time to spend a week with my wife and daughter who is home from college for the Thanksgiving holiday then off to sunny Arizona for my last two shows of the year.

As a digital artist that has made his entire income from creating and selling fractal prints for years, I sometimes find myself concentrating on the business side of my art career more than the creative side. That easy easy to do when you travel too and sell at nearly 30 art festivals a year. Combine that with keeping both a website which contains an online store as well as this blog and numerous online web galleries current and you can see that unfortunately, creating art often takes a back seat.
That trend took a turn last weekend while I was at a show in Pasco Washington. It was a 3 day affair, set up in an indoor area. Long hours and periods of time when the customer count was slow allowed me to finalize some new pieces I've been working sporadically on for some time. I'll be posting these panoramic designs over the next few days.

On top of having an insane traveling schedule for all of the art festivals I go to, I've been working on a new panorama series of fractals. It's been a long time coming, but I was finally able to locate clip frames that will fit my new panorama series. I will be adding them to my store ASAP in 12"x36" & 8"x24" sizes.
