I love Fort Worden! I have a long good history there and it feels a bit like coming home. I have heard they do artist in residence there. Should look into that would be a gift to create there on a longer time schedule.
I worked my artistic butt off while at Artfest. Met and reconnected with fabulous people. Always a hard choice between socializing and just putting my head down and making more art. I got some socializing in at the beginning of the week, but by the end was the walking art dead.
I came home from Artfest with a million ideas and inspirations boiling in my brain. Which I put to good use for a few days until I started cough up my lungs in this dry retched fashion. Now several of my beloveds have had this charming virus. But I was confidant that I was immune to such human weakness. But I was wrong, So wrong! So 7 days spent with the martian death flu and just in time for my highly procrastinated date with a box full of receipts and my favorite day of the year April 15th... death and taxes.... oh to be avoided!
But alas, I am now on the other side of all that. I am getting my strength back and starting crazy production for the University District Street Fair in Seattle on May 17,18th.
More art from Artfest pictures soon...
