At The Fair
oil on panel, 24x16.5"
I love going to the State Fair. Its such a production, with something for everyone. The rides, the food(!), art shows, crafts, traditional skills like baking and quilting, all kinds of music, Hispanic arts, African American arts, Native American dancing, the barns filled with 4-H projects, horses... Maybe what I like best is seeing all the families, parents sharing with wide-eyed kids, the teens being oh-so-cool but still having a great time. Its a day where everyone seems to shed the worries and cares, basking in the sunshine. My favorite Fair food has always been a corndog - last year I discovered a green chile corndog (I'm in New Mexico, after all) and it was the best ever. Can't wait till this year's Fair, but while we wait, what are Your favorite things about the Fair?
I'm not sure why, but this image looks so much better on my website than here at the blog - the link is on the upper right of this page, or click Here.
