Salem Art Festival

A few weekends ago we took a trip to Salem, OR for a three day art festival. Apparently the Salem Art Festival was named one of the top 50 in the country, so Renee was very flattered to have gotten in. It took place in a beautiful park in Salem and we spent three perfect days hanging out in the shade of the gigantic trees.

Here is the artist herself; hard at work.

Over 200 artist from all over the country set up there.

This gate ran along the entire perimeter of the park. Gotta keep those crazy artists contained!

It took us two car trips to haul everything down to Salem. On the last day we were nervous about trying to fit get it home in one trip. Fortunately Renee had apparently sold just enough work that it was possible. One more painting and we might have had to come back for it!

Wow, it looks like you had a beautiful weekend for the show. What an honor to be asked and what a tribute to your skills to be able to make it home with one car load. Way to go, Renee!
