For the past week we have had our show on the road and have been hard at work at the Judith Racht gallery’s Outsiders Art Fair in Michigan.
I had a lot of help making our exhibit a success and I’d like to thank everyone who had a hand in making it happen.
Creating the paintings for the show was only half of the work that went into this trip. I had so much help from my wife and son that this show wouldn’t have been possible without them. Milo and Crystal helped me set up our booth and run it too. Milo even greeted our customers with a big smile and a wave.
At the show we meet lots of people and saw a lot of amazing art objects. Like the ones made by our new friend Heavy. He gave us a lot of tips and kept us laughing with his great art!
Here he is with Milo and a painting he calls the “Center of the Universe”. As he held Milo up in front of his sun painting for a photo Heavy said “look it’s an eclipse!”
Even our “cell mate” Patrick Mcardle shared some advice and cool stories with us about seeing Chuck Berry perform at a high school gym. Patrick brought such a vast collection of art I was able to show my work right next to some wonderful Howard Finster pieces.
It was an incredible experience being able to have all of this support and love for the artwork I make. I am so grateful for my family, friends, and the community that made this opportunity happen. It’s something I’ll always remember.
