It looks a lot smaller in proportion to the sky.

Pirates and little children danced to the music of the Tipp Hillbillies.

Syracuse Cat

The photo I had linked to on this post originally was removed from Flickr, so here is a photo of my neighbor's cat!

Art on the Porches festival here I come

Little Paintings, originally uploaded by Melsky.

I will be doing my first festival in many years this Saturday. It's Art on the Porches, a festival with art, music and food in the Strathmore neighborhood of Syracuse.

These are some of the paintings I did for it. They are indoor/outdoor paintings on wood and have a protective varnish on them so they can be used on porches or outside.

I will be showing my art at 107 Ruskin, at the corner of Summit from 11-5 Saturday June 14th. I hope you will come visit me.

A band I want to see is playing at the festival - the Tipp Hillbillies. But they are not playing near my porch. Maybe I can sneak off for a few minutes though. I'm near the Evans stage so there will be a lot of music and I imagine I will like at least some of it.

Wildflowers, originally uploaded by Melsky.

This is an arrangement of wildflowers, also known as weeds! I love the way their stems curve.

I think I'm going to do a series of Syracuse wildflower photos.
