"BTW: speaking of long hair... I had it in the 70's.. and off and on in the 90's .. but my wife likes it shorter.. so for the last 25+ it's been "short-er" .. now thanks to Covid.. it's draping my  shoulders again.…"

What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
1. The thrill of setting up and the anticipation of making tons of moolah! But I like best reconnecting with other Artist (old friends) and getting to know new ones.

2. Those rare times when you not only make the booth fee and expenses.. but there is an actual profit at the end of the daze.

3. Closing the doors of the trailer - getting in the drivers seat of the truck... and heading HOME!!!
Best show ever and why
The Gold Coast in Chicago... because I sold a favorite piece that I made for an extraordinary amount of money. That one sale made the whole show. Wish I could have more of those.
Worst show ever and why
Syracuse NY — three days in the cold and rain. Not one sale. I saw my mates across the road get wiped out by the wind and rain.. and the predominate conversation by the meager crowd was; " ... you know how many Beers I could buy for the price of that [art] ?!!! "
And like Luke Skywalker said in the movies: "I'll never go to that planet again!"

However; there was one good thing about that show.. Robert Cray was featured at a Jazz fest & performing at the hotel I was staying in and that was FREE. I did have to buy my own beer though.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
It's been so long.. so I'll just give the credit to my best friend and sometimes partner in crime since 1972...
Larry Berman ;-D
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I love to cook! and it shows!!! ;-)
