My little bear friend reporter is nowhere to be found. That means it’s going to be up to me to give you our Philly show synopsis. I am going to keep it brief because I think you might rather see photos than hear me blather on about it all. And while it has been a great time, it has also been a very long day. Comments will follow each photo.
This is the table of my other neighbor – Susan McKay whose creations have some of the sweetest faces. Don’t know whose idea it was to place us next to each other because our husbands can get into way too much trouble together.
And another neighbor very close by – Janet Wilson displaying her intricate and beautifully made miniatures. This photo doesn’t do them justice so you should just plan on seeing them in person sometime.
Above and below the ever whimsical work of my friend Jody Battaglia. Jody was at Hugglets too. I’ve been lucky to see her twice this year!
Above and below – Donna Griffin’s table full of the sweetest little bear (and bunny) faces. A small handful of happiness.
The fun and capricious work of Art Rogers. Instantly recognizable.
This was the first time I had seen the work of Reina Mia Brill. It was very colorful and enthusiastically received. I could not walk by this table full of characters without stopping and grinning at their silly expressions.
It was a fun show to attend. The demos were really helpful and of course, it wouldn’t be anything without the artists and collectors. I enjoyed seeing many I had not seen in ages and ages. Adoptions from my table were on the slow side which I heard echoed throughout the day from others there.
Sebastian has just whispered in my ear that he thinks he knows why. He thinks it was because there were too many pretty things to choose from and it was hard to decide. I don’t know about his theory, but it’s as good as any as far as I’m concerned.
I hope you enjoyed this peek at the show. This is only a small sample of what was on display. There are other photos being posted here, there and yonder on the Internet from other artists I am sure. Now, I’m off to turn a page in my book before my head hits the pillow.
