Yesterday we went to the 29th Annual "Festival of the Masters" at Disney World! It is a HUGE art fair - the largest I've been to. Bigger than the Winter Park art fair or the Kansas City Plaza art fair even! It basically covers all of Downtown Disney - tons of booths selling art - lots of local artists, etc. They had a great segment of chalk/sidewalk artists too - everybody with about a 6'x6' square to create anything they wanted on. It looked like a lot of fun. We had a great time browsing through all of the great art there, drinking good drinks and eating good snacks =) Next year I am DEFINITELY going to have a booth there!!!!!!!! That is, if they jury accepts me, hehe (as most of you know, there is kind of a bias against fantasy art vs. "fine art" in some circles.....). There were a lot of people actually buying stuff, and it had a very good atmosphere to it. Of course being at Disney World during a relatively busy season, there was a very high attendance (lots of tourists who of course are already in "spending/souvenir buying" mode, hehe).
It's another beautiful day of course (did I mention how much I love Florida in the fall/winter?) - we have our windows open as usual and it's just so darned... nice! I'm getting ready to start on a new painting - I'm not at all sure what it will be of - I'm just going to pick some nice colours and start slapping down the paints! And of course, you can watch me HERE!
