It's definitely a crap shot, deciding which festivals to apply to, hoping the weather cooperates, and hoping people come to see the work (when I lived in MA I only participated indoor after hurricane force winds ruined my tent one Labor Day weekend many years ago). From what I gathered, many of the participants in this weekends Riverside Art Festival were disappointed. Lots of people came, not so many were interested in buying big items, fortunately I had a wide range of price points. I am going to be exhibiting in two more weekend festivals, the next is in June, then August. I will need that much time to rest up and energize between shows.

I am really looking forward to resting tomorrow, organizing, and if I am lucky I will be able to get back into painting new work. I exhibited watercolor paintings this past weekend, but I admit that my focus has been more on mixed media encaustic paintings. My next two shows will only be featuring new mixed media encaustic work.
