It began ... years ago
May Fest !
more local artists
who very serendipitously
decided to meet and
set up their wares
a few blocks
away from the madding crowd !
It was a show up and be there kind of thing ~
I loved it!
It has become a really wonderful
big deal in Tulsa,
gaining momentum yearly with more and more local artists climbing on board!
So many people are coming out of their artistic closets and discovering their inner creativity !
This year it is absolutely gorgeous weather, with nights in the 40's and daytimes barely reaching 80 ~ it is heaven on earth !
Gone are my own days of popping up my rainbow umbrella in the sun wind and rain, but you can still find my things with other people ... Zelia has some of my original stone creations at this festival... She is loves stones, as much as I do !
Friday, I strolled around and found my favorite local potter, Mr. Etudaiye from Nigeria ...
just outside the
Dilly Deli :
Here are some pictures through my lens ...
Yes, I enjoyed watching the wheel demonstration
from Clay Works Studios !
Buy one of her bracelets, or one of her colorful potholders !
See her sketches of flowers !
I love how she is keeping her teddy bear close.
Childhood is special.
Casts made of your hands or feet, while you wait.
The artist name is Harjo ~ He draws what he thinks of ...
The face of the future ! Have you seen Robot and Frank ~ the movie ?
There are blue skies for the
Tulsa International Mayfest and Blue Dome Arts Festival !
Original Working Shell Lamp by The Outsiders !
