i fell in...
...with the scottsdale arts festival.
it was a beautiful day and a lovely place for the celebration of art.
t.shirt weather. lots of green grass. clear flowing fountains.
children laughing. music ringing.
and ahhhh the festival food. check out #3...the BBQ sundae???
pulled pork. beans. slaw. all topped with BBQ sauce.
even the food was clever!
stella and i took advantage of the "make and take" booths.
"and now do you like my hat?"
"i do! what a hat! i like it! i like that party hat!"
(go! dog! go!)
several weeks ago in the arizona republic there was a call for used bags by artist Virginia Fleck. now i know why. they were for OVERFLOW! her monumental installation of thousands of recycled plastic bags.
(sam wolcott.s art table she is so charming)
stella and i both came home with ceramic art pieces from alissa clark.
"do all things with love"
and i have a gorgeous new handcrafted leather art journal
from artist iona. i wish i could have bought a dozen of these.
at the end of the day, this was the best excuse for a pair of weary feet.
what festivals have you enjoyed lately?
