The Hole story

I had a great day at the Fenton Street Market.  Actually sold 5 paintings today- YAH!  It was awesome.  It was a beautiful morning but by early afternoon the weather started to change and the wind started with a fury.  My tent almost flew away, and that is with gallons of water and weights tying it down.  All or most of my paintings fell at least 4 times.  It was so frustrating.  I have to say that all of vendors at the Fenton Street Market are all so nice and helpful.  They helped me put my booth back numerous times.  I don’t know what I would have done without them.  But in all of the mess, one of my paintings actually got a hole in it.  Such a bummer.  I guess this is all a learning experience.  I am already in the process of buying a back to my tent.  That should help next time the wind tries to ruin my day.

You can find my latest works for sale on my Etsy site.

About PainterPaige

I am an abstract painter living in the Washington, DC suburbs. I have always loved to create. I won my first art award in 3rd grade for my “Friends with Animals” poster. The prize was $3 and my poster was hung at city hall for a month. It was a huge deal back in elementary school. I started my first business, Paige’s Painted Floorcloths, in 2006 where I hand-painted canvas floorcloths and sold them on my website, paigespaintedfloorcloths.com and at local art shows. My site is still up and custom floorcloths are still available although I gave up selling at shows a couple of years ago. This past year, I picked up a paintbrush and fell in love with painting all over again. This time I decided to stick to abstract painting on canvas. I am loving every minute of it!
