The First Post!

This is officially my first post as a blogger! High five! I thought I'd give this a try and see how interesting or uninteresting it is to various and sundry people, so let me know what you think.

So, I have the Lazy Daze Arts and Crafts Festival coming up on August 23rd in Cary, which means I've been painting like a maniac over here. Over 60,000 people attended the festival last year. Plus, they have a Beer Garden this year, so WHO KNOWS how many people will be there! ;) I've been creating mostly smaller paintings since I feel like most people won't be walking around with tons of cash, and what I specialize in are custom paintings. I'm thinking of this festival as more of an advertising opportunity. For those in the area, I hope you can make it! Here are a few of the paintings I've done so far for the festival:

A special thank you to Kelly for providing photos of her Kenny for inspiration for this one. He's so adorable!

I had to show some detail; he's too cute!

Here are a couple more:

And now I am off to create more paintings, and pray that it is not 1000 degrees next Saturday at the festival. In the meantime, I'm also making some "fans" to hand out just in case it turns out to be one of those hot and humid North Carolina summer days.
