I'm one sun-ripened tomato. Turns out that painting outdoors all day in direct sunlight without sunblock turns the skin a bright red, especially the arm holding the paint brush. But I'm not complaining - it was a great day yesterday at the Northshore Art Market.

I enjoyed meeting lots of new people and recalling familiar faces - great fun was had by all. I didn't have time to take any more photos, maybe next time, but here's one of my modest booth. I opted against putting up my canopy, and you'll note the easel on the left, this is where I was for most of the day, painting four paintings in all.

The first painting was sold before it was completed - it's an abstract painting of the street lights, pictured below. Several other paintings sold yesterday as well, and several new contacts made, all adding to a very successful art market for me. Sincere thanks to all who came out and to all who wished me well. Next Northshore Art Market is the second Saturday of May - I'll be there painting once again (with plenty of sunblock this time).
