The day was sunny and bright, the music was loud, the drinks cold...but where oh where were the children? For the first hour of the festival I painted one enthusiastic adult...oh no...not another Fair Day debacle. But as a woman said to me on her way past the stall..(I must have looked very dejected)..."It will get better...you'll see." Thankfully, she was right...first there was a little girl who wanted a dolphin..then a delightful wee person who wanted to scare his daddy and be a vampire...then a bunny, then another dolphin, then a princess...a spider...then I couldn't draw breath. It was full on....I barely had time to think.
