Naples National Art Festival


Here I am with a couple of (wax) characters at the Festival on Saturday. I'm a volunteer booth sitter and my niece Chrissie joined me and snapped this photo. We had a blast and the art was awesome. Over three hundred artists!!
I am mesmerized by these mobiles made of wire by Artist Michael Gard of San Francisco

Mary! Thank you (always) for your sweet comments, and now that I see "My Chrissie and her Tugboat", I just know I'm going to come back to your blog and find you've painted that fabulous picture. Wow. Can't wait!

That pink bow looks great in your red hair. :D

Dogs everywhere, especially here, think Tugboat is da bomb!

P.S. I hope people don't hesitate to visit even though your blog can't keep time.

Looks so fun Mary. I love those wax figures, what characters.

What a fabulous weekend; getting to spend time together every day of it!

And thank you for the link in your post! I'm honored. Tugboat was pretty pleased about our pic, the nice compliment from SamArtDog and the suggestion from Susan that you might paint us! Tee-Hee :)

XOXO

Looks like alot of fun and I think that mobile is amazing too! Now, might I ask what type of dog is Tugboat? Reminds me of American Bulldogs that I saw just this past Sunday.

Wasn't that a great show and weren't those figures eerie! The skin looked so real! We had fun there too!

OH, Wow! I just spent quite a while here checking out your recent posts that popped up. Your sketches with watercolor are wonderful! And I esp. love the Provincetown sunset!

As for sunsets viewed from west-facing beaches, we enjoy ours here in SoCal, too, by dutifully watching every second of the sun disappearing behind, in our case, an island.

Great!!!
Is Tugboat a pit?? Our dog Rocky, who passed away after Thanksgiving was a pit. He was the best dog we've ever owned.
