THE DAY AFTER...

The Gresham Art Festival was a pretty fun experience. I haven’t been a vendor at events like these very often, but when I arrived to put up my booth, there were smiling volunteers available to help unload my gear and who were better at setting up my little tent than I was. It was a gracious greeting, and I’d be honored to participate in this festival next year.
My sister Jill and her husband Ron helped me set up my wares and provided support throughout the day. I was glad for their company and for their help. I’d like to add that their commitment to my photography-endeavor reminds me to put forth my best effort, even when I am tired or discouraged — as does the encouragement of friends and their unsolicited positive comments.
As many of you know, I sometimes stray toward the introversion pole of the personality spectrum, so photography, for me, is an important means of sharing for when I am having trouble with my words.
There were over 150 vendors at the festival, so by the 8:30 deadline…

I HAVE A BOOTH at the GRESHAM ART FESTIVAL on SATURDAY, JULY 15th from 9am - 5pm

My photography booth will be up on 3rd Street (close to Main) in downtown Gresham from 9 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, July 15

This was my Portland Sunday Parkways booth from before. This year's booth will look pretty much the same...just a little bit older...and with new images from here in Portland and around the Pacific Northwest.

Dry Falls, Central Washington

Waterfront Park, Portland OR
This festival will also mark the debut of my home-made note-cards!
This is just one of ten different themes.

More than 150 juried artists will be spread out along Main St. and 3rd St. offering their wares, plus, you can shop in Downtown Gresham and listen to live performances—though what kind of performances, I'm not sure.

I'm not technically going to be doing any performances, but if it's going to be hot, you're welcome to come and watch me sweat. I'm thinking about doi…
