Come See Our Exhibit – Traverse County Fair!

Quilted Paper #1-3

This morning, I put the finishing touches on our very first Traverse County Arts Council Fair exhibit.  Feeling so proud of the work the members have been doing – and so pleased that we were able to share a few of our works with the public – I turned and locked the display.  As I was doing so, an older gentleman stood, looking at the pieces.

Wow, how great, I thought to myself – our first admirer!

Suddenly disappointed, the man turned to me and said, “Aren’t you going to put any farm machinery in there?”

I left the building, somewhat speechless.

I relayed the story to my brother-in-law.  Always full of great advice, he suggested our artistic endeavors more closely relate to our environment – watercolors of John Deere tractors.  Photos and sketches of agricultural equipment.  Such works could be, astutely stated by my brother-in-law, “$$$.”  Perhaps we have discovered the key to artistic financial success here in Wheaton, Minnesota.
