What a surprise for Canada Day arts exhibitors in Coquitlam by the lake. We got sunburns after weeks of mostly rainy windy drizzly dreary boring June days interspersed with (very occasional) sunbreaks. After setting up under dripping canopies at Evergreen, skies showed blue spots and later the crowds came. It was a wonderful event with cast of thousands of visitors, my display was luckily placed between great music, performed by cultures from Canada ie the world, and beutiful pottery to one side, Iris eyes on the other. A nice opportunity to show and sell my art, meet people and chat, plus share a few arty ideas with kids of all ages!
