I look forward to returning to Iowa tomorrow for my first outdoor show of the season: The Marion Arts Festival. Here's a peek at some new pieces I finished up this week:

My display is going to look a little different this year…I had to say goodbye to my big black carpeted panels (see bottom photo), as I traded in my dear old pick up last fall. My new mesh panels fold down nicely to fit into my little Element…Eloise! (yes, I named her!) ; )

The mesh will be cooler compared to solid walls…and my booth much brighter since the sidewalls will be white, I do have a black cover for the back wall. Did a test set up of the hardware in a local park to save time on site…my load of steel has increased by about 75 pounds!

Forgot to post before I left for the show…stay tuned for a recap!
