Pedestrian Day was not pedestrian
Sunday we packed up alot of art and set it up on artist's alley (alias Robinson St). I only had a couple of little pieces but John brought quite a bit and Becky did too. John's art has never been outside the house before so he was very excited and he sold 4 pieces! He sold the one he calls The Beatles which is the black and white one behind him and also the moose. I will miss the moose. Also a couple of little ones. Apparently we are now called The Martin Art Collective and are soon to be part of the Markham Arts Council, if I fill out the form. All in all it was a very busy day. John talked non-stop and painted on his Van Gogh and on his clothes. It's not really something I can explain. What I found most amazing was not the things coming out of John's mouth, "Cezanne was such a lazy painter, he never finished anything", but how the people he was talking to would agree with him! Next time I think I'll have my own table if I can get enough art together.
Becky gave many free demos of hand building which she teaches at her summer camp, "Earthworks Art" at Markham Village Pottery and Eleanor sold these two little guys. Buy one and Eleanor can afford another Copic marker!

Aug 16 is the next pedestrian Day, but I'm splitting a booth again. However, if anyone out there in webland wants a booth, solo or not, Les Olson, from Markham Village Pottery is looking for more artists. The booths are free as long as you are a Markhamite. The downside is that four letter word, "rain".
