Checklists in hand, I am gathering all of the things I need for another weekend working in the public eye. This event is a large, indoor, historical trade fair that has a tremendous following and a marvelous multifaceted model of events and displays and vendors selling wares. There are speakers and demonstrations and artisans like myself who are working on site doing any number of historical activities. I do not have a painting started and the time leading up to the event has not been conducive to preparing but the time is upon me and I head for Kalamazoo, Michigan in the morning. Here’s hoping this weekend is as fruitful as the last public ‘painting in the field’ event was. Stop in and say hello if you are in the neighborhood.
