So, who's been in a train wreck this year?

Posted by Alyn Federico on September 18, 2018 at 8:28pm 1 Comment

Like I said before, I'm an artist, I like to draw, airbrush, and paint. I tend to work big, my average pencil drawing's are 24x36, same goes for my paintings and though, I can't stick to a particular subject matter, I feel I do a good job.  I'm not a craftsperson, potter, jeweler or leather smith, I'm a fine artist.  And to that end, this page goes out to all the other fine artists out there.

Now, I can't speak for all of us but I'll bet I can speak for most.  It drives me to…

When the camping is better than the Art Shows.

Four years ago I started participating in the art show circuit. After finding that the art shows in my area sucked balls, I made a decision! If I was to start branching out and doing shows 300-500 miles away, then I was going to have to plan to find an alternative to expensive hotels/motels, along with overpriced and noisy campgrounds that charge you $30.00 a night to sleep on the ground. …

Thanks to all.

Arts and Apples art show—Rochester, Michigan—more about apples then art

Posted by Nels johnson on September 10, 2018 at 9:30pm 7 Comments

The Show was last weekend.  Three boring days with no sun, cold temps and fleeting rain showers.

Last weekend was a weather disaster everywhere in the Midwest. Heavy rains at Penrod, Bowling Green, Louisville, even St. Louis.

Rochester is a very affluent northwest suburb of Detroit.  Mucho dinero live here.  Everybody dresses in expensive outfits adorned with expensive purses and belts.

In earlier times AA was one of the top Michigan shows. Lots of artists did five…
