Getting Ready for a Show

I've not been posting as much as I would like lately. I was sick for a while and just didn't feel like doing anything - so I didn't. Now I'm getting ready for a show at the end of the month in Lockhart, Texas. It is their 5th Annual Rites of Spring Festival. The show will be in On the Square at 108 S. Commerce on Friday, March 28th — 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday, March 29th — 9:00 a.m. - 8:30 p.m. Directions to Lockhart

It is the usual push for me to get prints printed, bagged and labeled, originals matted and framed and priced. I'm also making covers for my display screens. This show will be inside a 4,000 sq. ft. building and I won't be taking my tent. Since my screens are metal you can see right through them and I found that rather distracting for my art when I didn't have my tent as a backdrop. So I'm sewing the covers. I bought a bunch of sage green burlap - material is expensive these days and being on a budget this worked. My brother designed and made my screens. They are nicely welded, light-weight metal and come apart to fit perfectly in my trunk of my car. I have only made three today and have six more to do but I was pleased with the way that my sample turned out on this partial screen. I'll take pictures at the show and share them with you - if you are in the area drop by.
