So another year's Ann Arbor Art Fair is done. The weather was truly amazing for mid-July- 60's and 70's the whole week with only a tiny bit of sprinkles here and there. We truly could not have asked for better weather for an outdoor art fair!
I had great neighbors as usual this year, some new folks and some familiar faces. It was great to catch up with the artists I know from previous years and from other shows. And as usual the Guild staff and volunteers did a spectacular job at helping out and organizing a huge and frenetic event to be almost sane. :)
A lot of my new work was flying off the walls, so I am fairly light on my stylized/abstract work and my sculptures right now. I will be hustling over the next 3 weeks to get some of the holes filled up before the Levis Commons art fair in Toledo in August- my next show.
Last but certainly not least, I was thrilled and honored to be the recipient of an award at Ann Arbor this year- the second place ribbon. The fact that the judge placed my work that high in a crowd of about 350 other amazing artists.. I am speechless. Mostly. ;) I was thinking of starting as 'Awards' page on my site like a lot of other artists seem to have, but I figured if I did that, this will be the last award I will ever get and it will sit on the page all lonely till the end of time. So I will hold off for now :)

I haven't done an in-progress series for a while, so I figured the lion I am working on getting recut before Ann Arbor would makes a great subject. So here he is- a 9-shot progress series.
And done with cutting!
I am working on his watercolor painting as we speak. :)
