The largest Green Bay Area art fair, Artstreet, was last weekend was this past weekend and I am finally recovered. It has been a two and a half day event for a few years and this year a couple of extra hours were added to Saturday. That made for a very long day, and made Sunday seem longer even though it was an hour shorter. The weather cooperated, for the most part, and it was reasonably pleasant for both visitors and artists. I met a lot of interesting folks, heard many great comments on my work, and even had some nice sales! Of course there were many friends who stopped by to say ‘hi’ and that always makes it fun. A big Thanks to all who came out over the weekend!
For those who missed it, or just didn’t buy anything there, you can find more of my work at The Flying Pig Gallery in Algoma, WI. Just took new pieces over, so there is a good assortment to choose from.

Making the fabric with Spoonflower’s program made me think about creating mirror images that could be printed on other materials, i.e. standard photos, metal prints. There is a great tutorial on making them in Photoshop, so I got to work. Finally got to bed about 1:30 am….. (which was a bit of an issue because our Great Dane/White Shepherd mix had decided he was sleeping in my spot). My husband questioned whether or not these new images were true to my claim that all of the designs I show are “in the glass”. Well, the only manipulation I do is to multiply the photographic image, so I’m thinking it’s not much of a stretch. And what I am seeing seems worth the work! Enjoy!
