"Tarp straps/bungee cords from peak to each corner work well. They don't add any bulk and will fold back up with the canopy and still fit in the bag."

"I spent a few minutes on paypal's site - they seem to want you to chose between plans. I am definitely a minimalist, and want NO extra anything. What variant of theirs do you use?"

"I use paypal....love it!  Same rates and I get a PayPal business debit card that I use to pay everything with and get cash back every month. I pay all my motel fees, travel expenses and have gotten anywhere from $12 to $50 back!"

Des Moines Arts Festival

Posted on June 28, 2014 at 7:30pm 8 Comments

Greetings,

I was checking the weather forecast for the festival, and up pops this winner.  Pretty much a sad commentary on the current state of affairs, eh?

Geneva Fine Arts Fair, A Review

Posted on August 1, 2013 at 7:00pm 10 Comments

Greetings, 

Welcome to the Cooper studio, Jefferson, Iowa, where I've recently arrived after exhibiting at the Geneva (Illinois) Fine Arts Fair.

Do you remember a month or so ago, when on these very pages, I posted a blog article titled A Walk Through At The Des Moines Summer Arts Festival?  No?  Well, here's a link:   …

A Walk-Through At The Des Moines Summer Art Festival, 2013

Greetings,

Welcome to the Cooper studio, Jefferson, Iowa.  Yup, that Jefferson.  The one about an hour northwest of Des Moines, close enough so that it was perfectly logical to drive in and spend the day, just to review an art show that I was not exhibiting in.

And so, here we are:  a review.

Saturday, 1PM.  Husband and I park the car at the nearest parking ramp and head towards the southeast corner of the…

Running Like The Bambi's...

Greetings, 

 

Welcome to the Cooper studio, Jefferson, Iowa, where today, was a run morning.  As I've mentioned before, and I'm sure you've heard, there are a select few mornings of the week where I do a predawn run/trot/limp - one of those.  

 

I was…

Hi Karen,

Thanks for joining this new site. Were you at Krasl this year or last? I was there and would love to meet you. Maybe next year.

In the meantime, please invite some friends to join. We can turn this into an artists destination, "the more, the merrier."

Well, we've left our winter behind (I hope)...SW Missouri is notorious for 'I-44 corridor changes' and I'm right on it!  Oh, and I know Jefferson...I was born and raised in Boone (Co.).  So, do you still have the Red Barn festival?  I do both painting (fine art) and painting (fun art illustrated barnwood signs) as well as sculpture in polymer clay. I always wanted to get back 'home' but the timing has been wrong for shows I really wanted to do and now the state of the gas prices is giving me pause for thought.  My brother lives in Eldora and my sister in Dubuque so I have reason to make an extended trip. Do you do many Iowa shows?
