reposted from wessforeman.com/blog— Thanks to everyone who braved the perfect weather and made it out to the Palmer Park Arts Market today [though it was not exactly ideal for canopies and paintings and small dogs and anything else susceptible to strong gusts of wind]. I gave out a lot of business cards and talked to a lot of new people interested in art. I was even surprised to meet...
