The first week in August is Rangeley's Art in August, and this was my second year participating.
It was tons of fun getting to meet new clients and see returning customers. Lots of new friends from Florida, North Carolina, Connecticut!
This show is when I start selling the next year’s calendar, so it’s always an exciting debut to show off to people in person since it doesn’t go on sale on my website until September 16th—mark your calendars! This year I definitely like it so much more than I liked last years. It was fun getting wonderful feedback and selling some, and I can’t wait to hear what you think of it when it hits my shop.
For this year’s show, I decided to illustrate a few scenes from the town and area where we vacation every year. Since I’ve been going up my entire life, and have moved so many different places, I very much feel like it is the one place in my life that always stays the same. And I love it.
This is the place where the sunrises always inspire, the ice cream is better, the air is cleaner, and water is fresher, and the sunsets are richer.
