I'm going to post the pics from the Deland Art Festival a few at a time, in separate posts. The weather was beautiful but there were some disappointments. First, there were noticeably fewer participants than in the past. Second, a lot of the pieces were left over from past shows. Not as much new stuff as expected. Third, a lot of the artists would not allow photos of their work.
This artist, however, didn't mind at all. Richard Currier. Go look at his website. Fantastic work. And, note the size of the pieces. I don't think anything is smaller than 30"x30". He only had about half a dozen pieces at the show and they were all at least 4'x5'.
(someone should put together an American Blogger Dictionary)
So. How ya been?
Myself, I am guilty of serious blogger slackery due to my longgggggggg stretch of gloomy shititude.
To help me hide from the world, I've been reading. And, reading. And, reading.
Things such as: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (as good as the movie), a biography of Mark Twain (slow beginning), a biography of John Forbes Nash (Russell Crowe movie 'A Beautiful Mind'), The Memory Keeper's Daughter (excellent), a biography of Lewis Grizzard (sad), To Kill A Mockingbird (several times), Books (a memoir by Larry McMurtry), Lonesome Dove (wonderful), Atonement (excellent), short stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald (sucked), Divine Sisters of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (loved it), The Story of Edgar Sawtelle (awesome. why no movie?).
That's a sample. I regularly scavenge through the library's books-for-sale room and Goodwill shops for cheap prices. Lonesome Dove was $.10. I'll be starting on a bio of Zelda Fitzgerald soon. One dollah.
Work is the same. Still part-time. Yesterday was my last day until November 29. They shut down for the week of Thanksgiving. No pay for me but, oh well.
Tomorrow I'll be meeting a galfriend for lunch and a leisurely stroll through a large art festival in Deland. If I remember to get fresh batteries for the camera and then actually use the camera, I may have some pics to post this weekend.
