Artist's booth at Magnolia Summerfest

My booth at Magnolia Summerfest

Last weekend I set up my booth at Magnolia Summerfest in Seattle. This turned out to be a very pleasant show: lots of people attended, there was really good music (at least on Saturday) and weather in the low 70's both days.

I really enjoy doing events like this: not only do I get to start the process of making relationships with new customers, I also meet a lot of people who live in the neighborhood, and artists in the local art community. I recommend all artists doing this at some point in their career.

Even though some paintings sold, I have plenty of works remaining, all of which are now available for sale in my online store. https://shop.portraitsbysimonbland.com/
