Last Saturday, we drove to Hamilton for the Jerry Brown Arts Festival.
There was a huge crowd and we had to park a long way from the building. Thankfully, there were three police vans shuttling people from their cars to the building. It was my first time in a police van.
Painting on tin.....
and on some gourds. I loved the blue chicken gourd.

We go to a lot of art festivals. Because I don't want to run out of room or money, I have to limit myself to one item to bring home with me. This is what I bought at this festival.
It was made by Scott McQueen of Northport, Alabama. I loved everything in his booth, but this one called my name. It was a hard decision, but I'm happy this is living in my house now.
