I haven't been to a county fair since I left Fresno. That's at least 15 years ago! An art buddy and good friend of mine graciously invited me to go with her. Patt has won a first prize for her bracelet entry this year. It was a well deserved win because this bracelet is exquisite. Congratulations Patt!
I think we did everything! ate barbecue pork ribs,fudge,Tai Ice Tea, (yes next time I will try the deep fried Oreo!) Looked through all the exhibits. Had a massage and tried out a temperpedic bed. We checked out the Midway:
And of course I had to see the animals!
I really love going to the county fair. I love everything about it from the tacky stuffed animals to the colorful midway to the exhibits from local entries to the animals. There is something timeless about a fair. Nostalgic. They seem to hearken back to an earlier era. Or perhaps that's just my farming roots talking. Whatever it is I suddenly realized that it's important to participate and share you skills and talents with your community. It's a way of giving back to those around you. So to this end I have made a promise to myself : next year I will enter a piece of artwork. How about you?
Every Person, every place, everything has a story. Through textural and found object collage, assemblage,wearable assemblage and other oddities, I tell stories that are inextricably linked to three constants: LIfe, Death and Time. My creations are windows to dreams, memories and potential. Memento Mori
