Winding up for a very busy September. Oil painting classes in my studio start again next Wednesday and several great plein air trips are coming up with PAWA. It's going to be a great month!

Had a great time at the Fresh Paint Festival. A big thanks to everyone who stopped by and especially to those who took something special home with them. You are all very much appreciated!

Now that's how you want to see a booth! Full of lots of visitors! Also, you can see my new banner above. A big thanks to Don for creating the special supports that attached it to my booth. You're my hero!

My daughter, Anika, way in the back, manning the booth for her fourth year!

The little musician playing his violin outside my booth. Wow, could he play! It was another beautiful weekend on the Everett waterfront.

Okay, tomorrow is the day! It's the beginning of the Fresh Paint Festival on the Everett waterfront. Lots of last minute preparations happening around here. Looking forward to a great festival! I have a slightly different location this year. I'm a little closer to Anthony's. My both number is 42. Be sure to stop by and say "hi" if you are able to come.

What? Fresh Paint Art Festival is two days away? How did that happen?

The Coupeville Festival was great. I think mild weather helped out. Here's to some great weather this weekend too!
