Mixed Media & Monsoons on Mattoon

Now say that 3x fast – quite the tongue twister huh? I am a bit tongue-tied myself after winning First Place in the mixed media category at the Mattoon Street Art Festival. It was quite the morning as a rain storm (ok, maybe not a full-on monsoon) blew down the street knocking a few of the tents overs before the festival opened.

Was both surprised and delighted when a member of the Mattoon Street Historic Preservation Society, sponsors of the annual event, popped into my booth with a blue ribbon and a photographer.

It is quite an honor and being my first year at the show, I was humbled and appreciative of the award – look forward to seeing me (and my Shopbots!) again next year.

Here’s hoping the Farmer’s Almanac is calling for a dry weekend in 2017.
