In 2006 I participated in a plein air painting class on Sand Island as part of the Arts & Eats Festival. After the class my husband and I returned to view the art vendors booths and the steamboat regatta. We enjoyed it and I decided that I would try to participate in the 2007 event.
I found that circumstances didn’t allow me to participate as a vendor or volunteer, but I was able to take my paints and find a location to work. I had originally planned to try to get a view of the artist's booths but because they had changed the layout it was much to crowded for that. In 2006 they had used both sides of the courtyard for vendors and in 2007 they had grouped them all on one side. It was just too crowded to locate a good scene. So I went around to the amphitheatre side and found the view you see in this painting. I thought perhaps other “Old cars made new again” might appear but they didn’t. I couldn’t help naming it “Just Park Anywhere” because that’s just what they did.
P.S. Finishing touches added March 2008.
