"The chief source of art is man's pleasure in his daily work, which expresses itself and is embodied in that art itself."
William Morris (1834-1896)

Bethesda Row

Well, this is why some artists do not sell their work at outdoor art fairs. Atypical for this geographical area at this time of year, it was wet and cold in the 40's with a constant rain on Saturday. Sunday was colder but no rain. Still, we had sent out over 400 postcards inviting former customers to the show so we set up in the rain and put all our clothes on. (We came prepared thanks to the internet weather postings.) It couldn't have been a good show but a few of our loyal collectors saved the weekend. We are grateful.
Bethesda Row is an interesting area with a lot of good restaurants, unique shops, plenty of parking and hotels. In good weather, it would be a fun place to be so we hope to try it again next year.
