Crush Fest - An outdoor show - my first in years..

With a borrowed canopy and racks, along with a few things of my own, I set up a booth at a local Winery for their 2nd annual Crush Fest.  It was really hot, but weather stayed clear till about 4 pm when it thundered and rained for a short while before clearing again until time for load out.  Good crowds who paid $30 each to attend and sample several wines made here. 
 There were bagpipers!  About scared the fire out of me before I realized what that sound was. There's a large population of Scotch-Irish descendants hereabouts, so pipers are really popular.
The winery (Yonah Mountain Vineyards) exhibits art from Sautee Galleries, where I often show.  I sold a piece out of the winery which made up my mind to attend Crush Fest as a vendor.  I shared the booth with my good friend Carol - who sold 4 pieces! I would do the Fest again, even though I didn't sell anything, because I met a gallery owner who wants work - and two previous clients who want additional art!  Good Day!
Fields of Gold - 24 x 24 acrylic on deep panel.   New for this show.
