painter in my pocket











the first official day of fall is here! i started my favorite time of the year with going to the plaza art fair. they mostly feature artists for out of town, but i spotted a few locals among the mist of white tents covering many blocks. many of the restaurants, located on the plaza, set up booths of different foods they serve (and some even not on the menu) for fast eating while at the fair. there is always a large crowd at this kansas city art fair, it was hard to make my way to the inside of the showing tents! no, i did not purchase any pieces of art (one day, when i graduate, i'll be able to buy art! ah, it was hard with all the pieces i fell in love with today), but i did find some new artists that i sincerely enjoyed gazing at their work.
my favorite collection i found was made by one girl, by lisa norris. she used clothing patterns in her work, it was so creative. iona handcrafted books were so beautiful. the books were leather bound and all the paper was handmade. i also loved the charm school dropout with pieces by aaron and sarah collier (not featured). i love the mixed media, texture, and collages they produced along with the vintage photographs in each piece of work.

  48. i love your dress//boot combination. i just think the two things always work so well together. oh, and isn't it so sad being unable to buy any of the things you like at art fairs? there is a big one near me every summer, and i'm always bummed i can't afford most of my favorite pieces. ah well, someday!
