Winterfair Is Calling!
We are at the end of another year and, topped off like a cherry sundae, with an old favorite show – Winterfair – is almost upon us. Sponsored by Ohio Designer Craftsman, this last-of-the-season show is happening December 2 – 4 at Ohio Expo Center on the State Fairgrounds.
Hours are Fri. & Sat. 10 am – 8 pm and Sun. 12 – 5 pm. Over 400¬† artists presenting their finest wares and yours truly showing both new and¬† old favorites!
My booth number is 1030, near the center aisle and the west door and we hope you can make it.
|In the studio I have been busy; two of the new paintings are presented here.|
|“Street Musician” is the latest in a short line of four Armadillos. A humble character strumming his lute/guitar, attended by his favorite audience in a favorite village.|
“Dawn” pictures a shrine to the Virgin of Guadalupe attached to a simple wooden fence, all illuminated by a rising sun – a quiet image somewhere in the southwest. (As you¬† may know, the SW is a favorite theme here.)
It is almost time for the Vierows’ studio switch. For much of the year my husband’s studio is on the third floor, but come this time of year he is forced to retreat to the next level down. At this point, I surrender my space to him and move my studio into what is usually my morning exercise room. (I do Chi Gong warmups and Alexander back exercises every morning.) Though a trifle crowded, I can manage just fine and the gas bill remains at something almost payable during the winter months. Molly, our White Cat usually makes this room hers; I can’t decide whether she is happy or sad to see my drawing table, chair and assorted paints and brushes moving into her space again.
It is time of moving – from one time set to another (we gain an hour tonight), from one studio space to another, from Thanksgiving to Christmas. So¬† let me wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving and and even Happier Christmas ahead.¬† You are among my favorite friends and readers and I hope we can cap off the season with a friendly hug at Winterfair. Booth 1030! See you there!
