First Friday #23

Is been a while since I’ve blogged, and so I thought that I’d get back in the swing of things by going over this last First Friday. This last Friday was a beautiful day and I think that had an effect on our crowds. They continue to be somewhat small. I think Banana Factory artists … More First Friday #23

First Friday #21

Well First Friday at the Banana Factory was a few days ago and I have had a little time to think about what went on during the open house. This last Friday was a light affair once again.

First Friday #19

Last night was First Friday for February at the Banana Factory and it was a very active night.

The night began with an … More First Friday #14

First Friday this month was a little lighter then last month unfortunately, but I think I had a better time. It was a warm day and I thought it would bring out the crowds, instead I think the crowds decided to go to dinner I guess. I had on display this First Friday works from … More First Friday #12

First Friday #11

I’m back in my studio for the first time since last Friday and just reviewed my notes from last First Friday. It was one of the best First Friday’s we’ve had at the Banana Factory in a while. The event came on the heels of a very difficult day for me and so I was … More First Friday #11
