Kerouac Concert Kicks off a Great Weekend

Despite the rainy weather, Friday night's Kerouac festival concert/poetry reading at the Old Court in Lowell made for a great start to our weekend.  We went early to hang our kimono and were very pleased at how it looked against the black wall.  With the spotlights, it stood out well.  

Antje (Duvekot, shown here) and Dave Robinson, Urban Village Arts event organizer, were very complimentary about it and pleased to have it there.  They had seen pictures of it prior to the concert, but had not seen "the real deal."  It was great to be able to share it with them and to have a small part in the festival.

Their response was a good omen for our weekend.  Saturday was the regular "First Saturday" Open Studios here at Western Avenue Studios.  We had many visitors during the afternoon and Sonja sold one of her newest works and had inquiries about another larger work.  I had someone schedule an appointment for later today to discuss creating a custom jacket for her.  By the end of the day we were residing on cloud 9 again.  Not a bad place to be.
