Another Milestone: Our 100th Art Festival
Last updated on August 19th, 2019 at 11:06 am
Our first regular two-day art festival began April 24, 2010, at Pioneer Days in High Springs. We had just bought our Trimline tent.

We had done a few one-day trials locally, starting October 31, 2009, with the EZ-Up tent we had used with our scout troop and some easels we borrowed from our camera club. You can click on (booth) whenever you see it in the left column of Where To Find Us to see the evolution of our booth.
Our last festival of 2018 in Lutzannounced was our 100th regular two-day festival. Although that averages to a little over ten shows a year, we did seventeen festivals in the year before we reached this milestone (which may be a little too much). All one hundred shows were in Florida, where the art festival season runs from the beginning of October to the beginning of May. I can’t give any estimate on how long it will take us to complete the next 100 festivals (or if we will ever make it).
Although I grew up in Garden Grove, California, I have lived here in South Miami longer than I've lived anywhere else in the world. I've been married to my wonderful wife, Nancy, longer than I was ever without her. We were both teachers. Nancy recently retired after 40 years. I have also spent time as an officer in the Coast Guard, a commercial property appraiser, and an electrical engineering student. Now I'm technical support for Bee Happy Graphics. That means I handle this blog, our web page, and all E-mail, I do all post-processing and printing of the images, I cut mats and glass and frames. If you have a technical question, I would be the one trying to answer it.
