Very Crafty Business

Crafty Business by Tim Logan
Delivered "Crafty Business" digital file to the Bentonville Convention and Visitors' Bureau today. They are using it on the front of the 2013 NWA Craft Fairs brochure. You see a print of "About that Time" hanging on the wall behind Diana Eike, which is what they originally planned to use, but decided that it should be more "area inclusive," since Rogers goes in with Bentonville to produce the brochure, so I did this painting specifically for it. The original will be for sale at Norberta Philbrook Gallery beginning next week.

The painting is an "imagined" scene reminiscent of the War Eagle craft fair setting. You see the War Eagle bridge in the background, a slight shadow of the mill, then the scattering of craft tents. I know it doesn't really look like that, but it's the way I see it in my mind. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

The brochure will look something like the picture at left.
