Greetings, everyone, and thanks for visiting my blog! I just got back from Chalk Walk in Round Rock, Texas. It was held at Centennial Plaza in downtown Round Rock. Thankfully, the rain wasn't too bad, but the heat index was 103 degrees (due to the 100% humidity), so this presented some unique challenges. I'd like to pass along some solutions for staying healthy and safe in such an environment, especially if you're by yourself.
All in all, I had fun. I met a lot of friendly people, had good neighbors, and got my art out in front of a whole bunch of people, which is always a good thing! Below are some pictures of my display. Hope you enjoy them!
My next art show tour is going to be a doozy! My first stop will be in Granbury, Texas for the Harvest Moon Festival of the Arts from October 19 to October 21. Then it's off to Odessa, Texas and the Ellen Noel Art Museum for their gift shop preview party. From there, it's back down to the Hill Country to the Arts Round-Up in Spicewood, Texas from October 27 to October 28. Then it's back home once again to see if my husband and cats still remember who I am, until time for my next round of shows. Whew! I hope to see you while I'm out and about!
One final piece of advice that I forgot to mention earlier is this: do NOT wear a shirt that says ANYTHING about Oklahoma on it during the Red River Shootout weekend when you stop in a small town in Texas, unless you want every single person in line for kolaches to give you the stink eye. Even if UT won the game. (That's probably the only thing that kept me from getting kicked out of Czech Stop, to be honest!)
