Long before I started painting, I went to the Mystic Outdoor Art Festival. Went before I met my husband, went with my husband, went when my husband was an exhibitor.
Now, I am an exhibitor, and I'll be there this weekend, at the corner of Willow and Main. That's across the street from the post office, and near the bagel place. It's at the eastern edge of the festival, and while it's a spot that might not appeal to everyone, I find it ideal.
It's an honor to be included in the Mystic show! There's generally fantastic art and very high-level crafts in the show. You can't get out much when you're running the booth by yourself, but I've always been able to make some sneak trips to view other art, and I am always inspired and energized by what I see.
It's fun, too, to see friends and collectors, and to meet new people who enjoy and are attracted to my paintings.
I have some delicious new pieces for the show - you can check them out on my blog, The Accidental Artist.
