Good News... mercifully

 So good news. Yesterday we had our first art festival again since 2019. Chicago opened up the day we were setting up and we were the first festival in the city of Chicago since covid shut things down. Seeing old friends and familiar faces was better than I imagined. Seeing people out and happy was good for all I think. People seemed really engaged and celebratory. It truly was a great moment. I am glad I got vaccinated, glad I never got covid, and glad to have been part of the group that was there in Chicago and I am glad to see "the common good" is alive and well!

The rainy landscape is a recent painting from Vernon County. It sold at the show in Chicago, I was sad to see it leave. That was a good Andy Fletcher, for whatever that is worth or means.

The sunrise painting is of our farm. I had to get up at 4AM for a few days to paint. Lets just say usually I hit my stride around 10PM, 4AM is just not who I am, but it felt good. 

*Bonus good news. The sunrise painting won first prize at the Cedarburg Plein Air Event/Contest. The painting was purchased by the Cedarburg Art Museum. Quite a few couple of days indeed.

Back to work...
