Pawtucket Arts Fest 2010 Recap

I spent this last weekend making and selling art at the Pawtucket Arts Fest, held in Slater Park on September 11-12. We had beautiful autumn weather –not hot, not cold, but just right. It was a pleasure to meet a lot of other artists and crafters, and it was also a lot of fun to talk with the many Arts Fest go-ers that stopped by my art booth.

While I was at the Pawtucket Arts Fest, I also made a chance to work on a few paintings in the nice weather. I was able to finish one and start on another one, and here are some photos of what I was up to:

Many people stopped in front of my booth to participate in the “Name A Painting” Contest.

I brought with me two unfinished paintings to work on, and started a new painting on a third blank canvas.

(dis)continuity. Oil on Canvas. 16x20.

Here I am working on the second painting, and its semi-completed phase after the Pawtucket Arts Fest. It is still not titled yet.

The third painting I only just began. There’s still alot more work that I have planned to go into the image:


This painting was begun at the Pawtucket Arts Fest. There's still much more to go into it.

I also brought along my largest painting, a 6-foot by 4foot painting, entitled: Writhe


This is "Writhe," my giant 6-foot by 4-foot painting, hanging in my booth at the Pawtucket Arts Fest

Overall, it was a great experience being at the Pawtucket Arts Fest, and I enjoyed the beautiful weather and all of the great people with whom I was able to talk about art. Now I must get back into the studio to complete those paintings I started.
