Art display at Jackalope Art Festival Pasadena

Hello! I have been busy this spring so far!

The Pancakes and Booze Art Show was a new experience. I was surprised at the turnout, that place was packed! I am so glad I got earplugs before the event, as I was set up in the back by a D.J. booth with big speakers. If I did this event again, I would set up early so I could get a choice spot towards the entrance. I did some plein air doodles while there.

This was my setup, clinging to the bottom corner of this wall. I did some plein air doodles while there, including a copy of Cleo’s Bath.

Jackalope Art Festival in Pasadena was a fun event. Sharing a booth with other members of the California Creative Arts group was fun. I set up my grid wall of paintings, two boxes of smaller paintings, and some t-shirts for sale. I offered to do a plein air demonstration during the festival. This was no problem because the weather was sunny and nothing is better than to paint all day long! Thank you to the people who bought art items, I hope they bring you joy!

I thought for sure my first version of the PUG painting would sell because we were right across from a dog rescue organization … but no! 😛
