I’ve been absent from keeping up this blog over the last week and apologize. I’ve been preparing for the Indiana Artisan Marketplace beginning in just a few hours at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. I can’t take a lot of time for build-up, but this is the finest art/fine craft show that I’ve ever been involved with — as an artist or as a buyer. This is not a show to be missed.
(Aside – This group really treats their artists right. We pulled up the van yesterday and a volunteer loaded my stuff in for me!)
I’ll try to post images throughout the show from my iPhone. If I am able to move around (I expect to be busy) I will try to share the work of other artists.
50 Little Birds has two booths this year — I hope that I am the plate spinner that I think I am — one will be my sales booth and a second bootht o teach and demonstrate bird carving and painting. Please stop and chat a bit.
I would like to thank friend and woodcarver, Dennis Maddox, of Noblesville for his help yesterday. There were a few construction glitches and he was the man to solve the problems fast. Dennis has been carving at local golf coaurses. It seems that golf course like to turn their dead trees into large carvings. Recently Dennis carved a huge golf club for Crooked Stick Golf Course and a trio of Great Blue Heron for the golf course at Eagle Creek Park.
