The first 2014 Issaquah Artwalk - follow-up

My setup under my canopy - can you see the sloping grass?



I had such a good time at last Friday's Issaquah Artwalk!!  It was GORGEOUS weather - sunny but not hot.  So nice!!!!  

I had a great location - right out front - and even had room for my canopy (I just forgot to look at the ground before I chose a spot!... so it was more than a little sloped -oopsy)



My wicker folding screen.  Perhaps a bit too busy for a backdrop?

I had the chance to try out a new idea I had for displaying my art.  I found a fun, vintage wicker folding screen a few months ago.  It was a bit dirty and missing some paint.  I simply cleaned it off and spray-painted the heck out of it (4 cans and still could do more!).  But it was fun to use as a background for my artwork.  I'm not sure I'll use it next time, but it was definitely unique!




My art easel and wooden crate



 I also brought an easel and a wooden crate (which I used to carry my artwork as well as propping up my artwork).  I think I will probably paint the easel white.  I'm not sure about the crate.





 
We had a FABULOUS turnout for the Artwalk!  Thank you to all the people that stopped in to see my artwork and chat!  It was a lot of fun and I look forward to next month's Artwalk on July 11th!  Hope to see you there!!
