Yes, we did it! Four days at the Portland Flower Show, 14,000 people through the front door and we're still standing.
This time around we took on a woodland theme. Screen printed some wood grains and letterpress printed some title work over it (with wood type, naturally). My heartfelt thanks to Reuben J. Little of 43rd Parallel Press for his advice and assistance with the screen printing of all things woodsy.
And a big thank you to my sister Ann, Will, Desneiges, Diane of Ferdinand, and Rich and Kathy--all for spelling me long enough to take time out for breaks and do some fudge gazing upstairs. Thank you very much!
It was a very easy commute, as the Portland Company is located just
across the alley from my studio, with ample opportunity to go feed the
cat and breathe a little bit.
And check it, right there in the background is our very own Vandercook 223. Best 3,600 lb trade show prop ever!! It really pays to do your business where fork lifts are abundant.
