Telluride Plein Air Day 5

Evening Aspens
12 x 12

The day started out wet and cloudy -not auspicious for the first day of the public sale. However, by lunch the sun was out and so were the people. There was a steady stream of traffic pretty much all day- some artists did well, others not so much. I made some sales and felt like it was a very good day for me. Steve and I felt we'd received very positive feedback on both the work and the framing. Yea! Tonight is the Artist Party, then the second and last sale day tomorrow.

The 4th of July in Telluride is really special. Its a quintessential small town America celebration with a funky local parade, big barbeque in the town park followed by fireworks against the backdrop of the mountains. In addition every year there is a fly over right before the parade starts of two F-16s that come screaming down the box canyon, fly right over Main Street and bank up and away over the mountains. I've seen it three times and every time I get goosebumps. Happy 4th everyone!

I'll bet those jets make quite a racket with the sound bouncing off the sides of the canyon!
Sell up a storm, glad it's going well!

We had a 4th celebration in Creswell, Oregon, just like Tellurides, but instead of the barbeque, we have a pancake breakfast in the park. The money from that goes towards next years fireworks show. The F-15s were there to start the parade too! It truly is special to live in America! So small town, but with big time appeal!
Glad the sales were good!
