The Cruelest Month

The rains, the winds, the rejection letters…

Yes, Saturday Market has started back up, and while the crowds are warm and interested, the sales are still pale from the long winter. Each week is a bit of a gamble, will it rain? Will the wind take down the tent? Will anyone come out and buy something?

Then there are the art shows – April is the month most of the bigger shows decide who is selected and who is rejected. So far I did not get into Art in the Pearl or Art in the High Desert, but I did get into Salem. I still have a couple applications outstanding, and hope to get into Art and the Vineyard and Corvallis Fall Festival – we’ll see. I will keep the show schedule updated as the summer goes along.

If you find some spare time, come on down to the market and check out my new 2015 line up of items – the old reliable things are still there, but I have been busy all winter making new fun stuff.

April is the cruelest month, breedingLilacs out of the dead land, mixing

Memory and desire, stirring

Dull roots with spring rain.
