Rainy days and art shows...fine Scottish weather!

This weekend is one of the larger art fairs in the Indy area, the Talbot Street Art Festival. I've heard of this one, but never been to it before. When I got up this morning (way too early for a Saturday, I might add) it was raining. Anyone who has done art festivals before, either as a participating artist or as a volunteer helping out, knows that nothing is worse than having to set up everything in the rain. (Well, almost nothing. Tornadoes don't do much to help either!) My heart goes out to all those artists and volunteers who are, at this moment, battling the elements to get things set up. I'm out of the rain and having another cup of tea. :)

Today I'm making the mother molds for the Celtic cross I posted about this week, and also another smaller Celtic project I'm working on. Normally I'd do this part outdoors, but since it's raining (and also too dark in the garage today) I will be working on them inside. This is a dangerous prospect, because I tend to be messy with these things...not quite 5-year-old-with-finger-paint kind of messy, but close.

No pics in this post, because the projects are UGLY at this stage, with all the coats of latex on them. BUT, when I have a cross finished (hopefully tomorrow or Monday) I will post pics then. In the meantime, I'll leave you with a pic of one of my Celtic-inspired ink drawings:
