Spokane ArtFest 2009
Afters years of begging and pleading with the promoters of the Spokane ArtFest to place my booth in a north facing, under the shade of the trees location, my perseverance finally paid off. I couldn't have asked for a better location for last weekends annual art festival that is located in the Brown's Addition of west Spokane WA.
First isle from the main entrance and smack dab under two wonderful oak trees made for the most pleasant and profitable show I've ever done in Spokane. For the first time in as long as I can remember, this 3 day event was blessed with warm sunny weather. Not a rain cloud to be seen. This made the patrons, as well as us artists very happy.
I can't tell whether it was because I've developed such a strong and loyal following in this region or because I introduced so many new fractal images that I haven't shown here before, or possibly a combination of the two but I had a record sales this year. Framed as well as matted prints flew out of my booth faster than I could keep my walls and bins stocked.
This in addition to the great artist amenities make for a very pleasant weekend. I hope that next year's jurors invite me back to this great show.
