This past Sunday I reluctantly agreed to participate in an Art festival in Ames, Iowa. The organizer called and said they had a cancellation so there was an open site. So I loaded up my trailer and headed for Ames about an hour drive. I have not had good luck with this particular art fair in past years and today would be no different. A large crowd began to emerge soon after the area churches let out. I put out 50 business cards I printed the night before and all were gone by3:30p so at least a good number made it into my display. However, didn't sell anything.
This is the second time this year I have gone home without a sale. I did entertain myself talking to people and answering questions. here is the list of some my favorite questions
1. Are you an artist?
2. Did you do these chalk drawings?
3. Did you know Bob Ross?
4. Do You paint on sidewalks?
5 and my all time favorite---How much for that rug you have on your display floor?
Thank goodness this was the last art fair of the year--regards tom
