"And this is a bad thing? In this day of rampant fraud and identity theft THEY'RE PROTECTING YOU! I had one of my cards hacked recently; my bank theorized that the card was read remotely when I bought gas at the pump at a gas…"
"We used AirBNb this July when we worked at Wyandotte and Ann Arbor, with mixed results.
The real problem in my view is you don't really know what you're getting until you're there.
We booked into a house in Hamtramck,…"
"Other than Larry's advice and the wrinkles, which are going to be nearly impossible to eliminate in that type of fabric if you're on the road (unless you like to iron every week), the booth looks great. If I was walking by I'd…"
Amanda and I use a GMC Savana 1500 van that we bought very used. Like Diane we rented from Enterprise for a while before buying, and like most everything else we keep the tent, panels, tools, furniture, weights etc. packed all the…"
Amanda and I have been pulling a travel trailer with our cargo van for several years. It's good and bad, depending on how you think about it.
Dennis is right in that it gives you freedom, you meet nice people, and we get…"
"David, I lived in El Paso for (jeez, was it that long?). I went to Kermezaar (didn't have an artist wife then) and liked the show, as a customer. It's an indoor show in the fall, run by a local org. and charges…"
"Christine, we used them for several years before switching to pro panels and I liked them. easy to put up; the velcro lined up perfectly with the mesh panels and looked pretty good. we have pro panels now for a year; they look better,…"
"Chin up, Caroline. Happy days will be here again.
We just had to cancel two shows (St. James Ct. and the Waynesville Sauerkraut festival) because Amanda's mom died in Colombia. She's there attending to her family while I…"
Nobody ever told me I have to silicon spray the canopy; it just made sense, considering the material and how it's used. If you ever camped with an old (read not nylon) tent, waterproofing was pretty much a requirement. Anyway, it…"
When we started out we managed to get everything either into or onto the top of a Nissan Murano... any SUV will work if you can pack stuff on the roof.
We've switched recently to a cargo van (GMC Savanna... we bought it used about…"
"My wife still does nudes and seminude ceramic torsos. I get a lot of "what's it made of?" and my reply, if I think I can get away with it, is "human skin", and then I go into my best Buffalo Bill.."It puts…"
"Oceanside is the same company which did the Art in the Park show at Bayfront Park in Miami in April. they were... shall we say, less than honest about how they ran the show. They told us there was no buy/sell at the show and we had a sun…"
"Amanda and I will be at the Delray affair in Delray Beach. Wish us luck. BTW last week at Art in the Park in Miami... the show was a total bust and the promoter is basically.... I'll be charitable and say she stretches the…"

Best show ever and why
Boca Raton Art Festival, February 2010 at Mizner Park, Boca Raton. We sold six of Amanda's original pieces and enough prints and other stuff to make her a happy camper. Plus the Boca Raton Museum of Art People are First Rate promotors
Worst show ever and why
Christmas in the Park, Vero Beach. It was a lonely weekend; nobody showed, nobody cared. The promoter didn't.
