This was my first time to pack, travel and show by myself and it was not that bad thanks to being an inside venue and also thanks to my ProPanel pedestals I could stuff everything in my Subaru Forrester.
I traveled around thirteen hundred miles and gone five days and considering the back surgery I had recently I was proud of myself. Another big help with setting up was a newly purchased wagon which with wheels off fit just fine also.
The weather was overcast and there were tornado warnings all around but the eleven and a half hours included breaks every two hours in an antique shop or local eatery. Speaking of, if you are ever through Dumas, Texas be sure to stop for a meal at Alberts, had best homemade burger (they list them separate on the menus rather than the frozen patty burger. Also homemade pies, I had coconut cream pie that was delicious.
Always if you are an artist keep your travels an adventure and if you are a patron enjoy those shows, artist have worked hard to be there, we even had an artist from Michigan.
One of the joys of traveling is meeting other artist, thanks Jim Clements fantastic oil painter of western scenes and animals, Katy and Don Scroggins, amazing jewelry, and the funniest guy that kept me laughing Terrell Powell with his three-d type of comical art.
Must get back to work, see you on down the road.
