A Day at Hoot 2017

This is the first time in probably 10 years that I have not worked in a booth at Heart of Ohio Tole Painting convention (HOOT).  For most of those years my husband and I helped Della and Company, AKA Della and Bill Wetterman and last year I shared a booth with my creative friends Amy Mogish and Wendy Young.

I was not going to come, but at the last minute decided to come and spent the day on the trade show floor.  I thought you might enjoy seeing pictures of what was happening there:

These are just a few of the vendors at the show. I am sorry that I did not get more pictures but I had to do a little shopping.

There is just an excitement in the air when you go to a trade show. It is fun to see all the new surfaces and patterns, but the best part is connecting with old painting friends and making new ones.

The show is open for two more days, so if you have a chance treat yourself to a visit and take a big shopping bag.

Painting Hug,

Jane
