Last Saturday I got a call to say I had been taken off the waitlist for the three day Indian Wells Arts Festival – and here I am in a great space! Well, here the booth is – I’m behind the camera.
Jeni Bate at Indian Wells
The interesting part is that my booth has an unusual fung shui water element – a fire hydrant in one corner. I later received a ‘virtual ribbon’ for not complaining about the hydrant. Like what are they going to do – move it??? I put the mat bin in front of it.
Refractured watercolor with texture
Later in the afternoon, the oblique light across two of the paintings showed their texture to the best advantage.
Sometimes I wonder if people think that I don’t blog because I’m not doing anything arty. Or if I haven’t created anything recently, if I’m doing something else important. Well, I am. Behind every successful artist is a lot of paperwork. Show applications, gallery exhibition proposals, public art applications, (accounting, documenting, database administration….). I have 9 public art applications in the works, another document to troll for possibilities, a three day show this weekend but on Saturday night, I get to PARTY! Well, for a little while anyway, it will be back to the booth at Indian Wells Arts Festival on Sunday too.
