this little guy
on the left,
I’ll let the banner speak for itself. This Art Market runs May 1st through October 30th every year in South Boston. It is open Sundays 10:00-4:00. I believe it’s been around now for eight years, although I just heard about it.
The typical wares are on the trendy side and all the vendors seem young. It is bright and crisp and I was happy to discover it. I showed up on a wintry day in October (the last show for the season). People were freezing,
and, in case you were wondering why people are dressed so un-Bostonly, they were having a Halloween costume contest ; )
I finally finished these wall hangings a month or so back. They were in the works for much longer, and I had collected the fabric and inspiration from the fabric store that I used to work at which, unfortunately went out of business a couple of years ago. This one was all my idea, inspired by the suggestion the fabric made to the seasons, which I call ‘Four Seasons’:
This one I’m really proud of–I simply love how it turned out! I was copying one that hung in our fabric store, but I made it from my remnants and had to improvise a little. I believe the fabric store one was supposed to be mountains and valleys, I call this one ‘NYC’:
I know it was a little while back, but I’d still like to share a few things I dashed off a few Valentine’s Day cards (ok, this first one wasn’t exactly dashed off)…
