Heading to Naperville, Illinois...Art Fair

The Naperville Woman's Club sponsors this art fair and it is at the Historic Naperville Settlement. The setting is beautiful...old restored buildings, people in period costumes, tree shaded grounds. Just lovely and quite pleasant. This is my third year to show here and it's always been a good show. The people are knowledgeable about art, appreciative of our craft and the crowds are usually quite good.

Last year I booked two commissions and sold a couple of originals as well as a nice selection of prints...both framed and unframed. The weather looks good for Friday's set-up but Saturday there is thunder storms in the will again be dragging out the "rain gear". This seems to be the pattern this season. I've gotten pretty good anymore at being prepared, at least for your every day rain storm.

The nice thing is you drive right up to your spot and unload...the bad thing is you can't start setting up until 5:00. It's an hour drive to where my brother lives so it makes for a long day. But he's great help and a wonderful host. When we get back to his place Friday...dinner will be waiting. What more could you ask for?

The van is loaded but still have some things to get together and have to pack clothes yet. I'll report back Monday with photos and let you know how the weekend went.

Say a little prayer for good weather...if it rains, at least let it be a gentle storm!! Not of this severe stuff that has hit other art fairs this far I've been very fortunate.
