Bluffton Arts & Seafood Festival


This year's festival was great! I made this sketch early on Saturday. Within a half an hour I couldn't see across the street! Everyone was in a festive mood and..... they brought their wallets :) Mind you, the majority of purchases were smaller but, it was so wonderful to see a few good sized paintings being carried. Perhaps we've seen a turn in the economy?

Dogs were dressed in Halloween costumes - I have to say seeing tutus on dogs was....... way too silly. The poor dogs!!!

This was my booth set up.  I took advantage of extra large spaces and a slim chance of showers for Saturday.  Here in Bluffton, a 40% chance of showers, for the most part, means no rain.  Now, if we were in western NY, it would have rained all day :)  The first year we were down here I'd always change outdoor plans when the forecast called for a 40% chance of rain.  Silly me!

Festivals are great for watching people.  I don't often take pictures of them but, this family won the show stopping prize.  I titled this first photo....

                                                        And, then there were three....
                     I bet next year, the Little Miss will be in the big wagon.  What do you think?

                                                            Yup, a show stopper :)
