Something Green?

I've been really busy lately getting my photos together and setting up a display for a local artist market. Saturday was my first day selling and it was quite a test to get everything set up and ready to sell. Then the weather turned on us.....:(

All the regular vendors said it was a really slow day so I guess I should be glad that I broke even. I intend to be there at least all summer, we'll see how it goes before deciding what to do in the fall.

With all my great photos on the monuments and cycling doesn't it figure that the first photo I sold was a floral.:rolleyes:

I was just happy to get that first sale. I learned a lot and have a lot of ideas on how to do things better in the next few weeks.

Busy, busy, busy. When am I ever going to have time to take any new photos?

Green you ask? Old you ask? Borrowed you ask?

Well it is like this;

I quit the bike shop to sell my photos. One of the last things I did was ask Waterford if they had time to repaint Miss M's fixte. Alas, this is their busiest time of the year so they wouldn't have time until the late fall.

Not that there is anything wrong with her ride but it is 2 1/2 years old and it is by far her favorite. Didn't really need repainting but I wanted to do something nice for her.

"I know" says I, "Instead of a repaint I'll sell it and get a new one."

Well I've got the new one now. I'll borrow some parts from her old one for a while and put the new stuff that has already arrived on. Won't be complete till tomorrow but it is looking good.

Congratulations on the first sale. It sounds like a tough racket, but your photos stand out here and I'm sure they'll stand ou there. Who has ever seen an MB1 orignal piece and not been blown away?

post script - maybe I'm seeing it wrong, but why is there a drilled bridge in that peppermint Waterford's chainstays?

Probably for fenders. I seem to remeber you saying something about a custom Waterford for Miss M a while back, like during winter, is this it?

Just wondering, what is/was your day job that just allows you to repaint a bike as "Something nice."

Hey MB1, I live south of DC but had heard of the weekend art sales up there and flea markets, are they at the same place? Where are they at and what hours? Do most vendors (as I assume stuff like you have is not inexpensive) take plastic or do you need cash?

Saturdays only 8-5. I'll take cash or check. Photos from $20-90.

Thanks for asking.
