ARTFEST or BUST

Dayna, Steph and I are riding together to Artfest in a few days. We are packing for 9 classes, 3 each and 2 of them I will be teaching so I need to pack enough supplies for 25 people x 2. Well that's the excuse we are using to explain why we need to take Howard's, Dayna's husbands utility trailer. And being crazy artist people we couldn't just put half our studio in the trailer and cover it with a tarp...oh no...we decided to...art it up.
We started at 1:00 pm Sunday afternoon...

we had a plan and some rattle cans, those taggers don't have anything on us.
Well maybe they have a bit more practice. It took two of us to hold the stencil and spray. We had a few over sprays and more than one drip but we learned fast and figured out how to fix our mistakes.
I even tried to touch up Dayna's hair for her....what the heck it's the same color.
By now we breathed in quite a bit of paint and were laughing and thinking our handy work was looking pretty darn cool.
I love the colors, it is my palette! But these are my first trailer flames.
Time for the punch line...
5:00 pm same Sunday afternoon and we are done. What a fun day, this is the sort of thing I live for. A few hours laughing with a friend mixed with paint and a little creativity. I could live on that energy for a week.
Watch for us on I-5 next Wednesday, here we come.

The colors in your photos are spectacular (my word of the day). I had so much fun spraying and spritzing. Thanks for having the design figured out in advance AND for having the stencils all cut and ready. The countdown has begun!
