Outdoor Art Show #1 Challenge…Wind

A breezy day on Rittenhouse Square shuts down the art show for us and about six other artists. Our paintings were acting like sails and the walls of our booth were starting to cave in, even with our trusty lead (yes, we mean actual lead, we don’t mess around) weights. We packed it in as quickly as possible and then helped some of our neighbors get their booths down safely. It was a wind tunnel in our area and barely a breeze in the rest of the park. So sad to have to drive away and see so many other artists sitting in the sun and talking to customers. We couldn’t risk it though. We’ve been picked up and thrown about by Mother Nature before and it’s not an experience we would like to repeat.

Wow, this is now the third show this spring that we’ve been practically blown away. Bad luck comes in threes though, right? Chicago’s Old Town Art Festival is next weekend. Here’s hoping for better weather.
