At the art show in Jackson they let some of the artists with campers stay in the parking lot of the fair grounds in town, so I slept there in my van. They have a rodeo twice a week so with the horse trailers parked in the same parking lot much of the time it was kind of aromatic at times. But one of the benefits was that I got to watch an informal group of folks team roping steers one evening. I asked one of the young ladies there if they were practicing for the rodeo the next night. She said some might be but they were mostly there just for the fun of it. This woman certainly was having fun–I’m not sure whether the steer was or not.

Being on the road to art shows every summer has it’s pluses and minuses. This is one of the pluses–an empty road on a beautiful Montana morning.

Last one of this series. Nothing special about it but I include it to point out that the particular photo they are looking at, Grenada Street Mashup, was by far the most likely to stop folks at the art show in Salt Lake City. It’s always hard to tell what image is going to attract the most attention at an art show, but what’s really interesting is how location dependent preference is; this photo didn’t attract nearly the same amount of attention at the shows since Salt Lake.

The first step in selling your art to customers at an art show is to get them into your booth looking at your work. Well, technically the first step is actually getting people to the art show so they will walk by your booth. But that’s not under the artist’s control.) The Utah Arts Festival in Salt Lake City had bucket loads of people walking around and a few of the photographs I had on display in my booth were pretty effective in drawing folks in to have a look around. It was a very busy (and successful) show but there was still plenty of time to photograph some of the viewers.

A strong indicator that postmodern art has gotten just a little too carried away.
