Getting ready for Art in the Barn

  Just a few days to go before Art in the Barn in Arlington.  This was the venue last year that gave me my start on the road to selling my art work.  Rocky the rockfish was my first big sale .  I've come a long way in a year and hope to sell a lot more fish prints this Sunday.  This means a printing frenzy is about to take place under the canopy in my meadow.  It's cool and cloudy...good weather for fish it does get a bit smelly if the temp goes up and the sun comes out. Truthfully, it is smelly anyway.  In fact, if you put your nose up to your print, you will be able to smell it for years.....some even have a scale or two to add to the authenticity!! Rum Tum, the cat, loves it when I do fish printing.  He sits on my chair and reaches out to grab my leg(lovingly) with his claws during the process.

 I've ordered a bag of octopi so I can make some more blooming octopi prints along with the rockfish and tilapia.  We'll be having fun the next few days!!
