Are you wondering how I do it? What’s the process that I use to get from A to Z?
- Paint Sunflower into the Background image
- Add more petals and lines
- Add additional lines – looking for the feeling of motion
- Remove some lines – too much activity
- Remove much of the Blue color – found center distracting
- Strengthened Yellow on Petals
- Crop image for a more dramatic composition. Repainted center seeds to strengthen focal area.

October 1 thru May 30, the street fair is open from 7:00 AM – 2:00 PM.
Those are the cooler months. In winter, we need gloves and sheepskin boots to setup; in summer, shorts and tanktops. We love the street fair, the people we meet, and the collectors who return yearly. The community of vendors are our weekend family and a good time is had by all. I should mention that I could not do any of this without the physical work and help from my pal, Al. He makes it easy for this happy artist.
If you’re vacationing in the Palm Springs,CA area, the fair is a wonderful place to spend a day. There’s nothing like it anywhere else. Approximately 15,000 to 20,000 people visit the street fair everyweekend during the tourist season. Vacations are planned around visiting the COD Street Fair. And don’t forget to stop by Lot 2, Booth #75, for a hug from the hugging artist.
If you’re in the area, the other street fair to visit is on Thursday night in downtown Palm Springs. It’s called Villagefest. I no longer show there (too much work for older folks, and yes I’m older) but it’s a great Thursday night happening. This is my public service announcement about the benefits of visiting the Palm Springs CA area. I hope to see you soon.
