Helendale swap meet - our test run for art fairs of the future

Some of you may know about my plans to participate in art shows and street fairs. Well, last Saturday was our test run. We got everything (or, rather, almost everything) together and went to a local swap meet. It was great! No, I didn't sell anything - but it was still nice to have our own booth, to talk to people, and to paint outside. A small local news website mentioned me in an article. Here we are(minus my husband who took the picture) in the morning, just finished setting up:

And me painting our dog from a photo:

We still have some things to add: a print rack (my husband is making it), a card rack, table cloths (I am making those), and other details. Next Saturday we're in Barstow, and the Saturday after that...who knows ;)
