Equine Art, Fryeburg Fair, and Writing

In two weeks my equine and other animal art, done in pencil, and also the pastel paintings, must be finished for inclusion in the art exhibit (Agricultural Exhibition hall) at Fryeburg Fair. The work is coming along well. It's great to see such fine weather this month. Here in Maine, we're finally getting our summer, which was totally rained out. Summer in September. May it last right into November. That seems fair, and it has happened before; why not again?
Every year I look forward to Fryeburg Fair. For the past 8 years I've had my artwork in Space 107 of the Craft Center. It is to be there again., so there's lots of art to prepare and to pack for setup on October 1st and 2nd.
For many years before I ever displayed my work, I knew Fryeburg Fair was the ultimate place in Maine, during the first week of October, for photographing animals, especially the draft horses. There will be time for that this year too, though I will mostly be found at Space 107. Maybe I'll see you there too.

The first draft of my novel for ages 8 through 12, is finished and I'm now working on revisions. This book is a lot of fun! I look forward to concentrating on it after the fair.
