Here's a view of my booth at Amelia Island's Isle of Six Flags Shrimp Arts and Crafts Festival. Lots and lots of people walked along the 8 block festival in the heat. My husband, Jim, and I kept relatively comfortable sitting behind the tent in the shade of the trees and the umbrella. There was a cool breeze that was evident while in the shade. It was hot when I bopped up to tell to the folks who came in to view my work. I received lots of wonderful compliments.
I did get the honor of being selected Judge's Choice. The Shrimpfest judges choose pieces that they really like. The chosen artists deliver the art to a central place where the judges choose the first, second, third prizes. I didn't get one of those but still am honored to be among the chosen. The piece is called "Wanderlust."
My son Corey is standing by his portrait. I had just finished it the night before the festival.
