Saturday was the Covington art market, an outdoor market that happens every other month featuring local painters, potters, photographers, jewelry makers, metal workers etc... well, let's just say that this one was more a test of will and endurance to see if we could all withstand the 100+ degree weather and not very many shoppers. wow, it was hot. only the die-hard regular artists were out there. i am looking forward to the next one, in october and to the New Orleans mid-city art market which is the last saturday of each month. i have not participated in that one yet but i plan to in september. i am not brave enough to try another all day outdoor market in august. in an attempt to think "cool" i have painted another water lily piece and will post a couple more watery pictures i took at the new orleans ciy park botanical gardens.
