Got soaked in art and music, that is!
Heh. The higher the temperature, the cornier I get, apparently.
Last Saturday was the first ever SOAK Music and Arts Festival. If I’m not mistaken, this was the first of its kind in the city. There are many events just like this in other parts of the country and I’m glad the idea has been introduced to the Queen City of the South. Because music? Good. Art? Gooooood.
The event was held at the Family Park. I grew up in this park. I came to the city for college when I was 15. The malls were too far from our apartment and to be honest, they weren’t my thing. But this park was only a 5-minute walk from where we lived. I enjoyed coming here on my own to draw and just look at the trees. Or draw the trees. Funny memory: I was drawing some of the trees one time when a family (dad and his two sons) came over to ask me what I was doing. That scarred me for life. It made me realize I do not like to create with an audience.
But it felt great to be back.
Here was my display:
There were no tables provided so we improvised. And in the process, I realized that displaying my handmade items this way is actually better all around. We don’t have to lug around a lot of things; only one cylindrical bag for the rack and tarpaulin stand and another bag for the items. More people also actually came over to check out the purses/bags due to the arrangement.
Not related: It’s my birthday today! NEW YEAR. SO MANY POSSIBILITIES. No, I shall not start writing in all-caps this year.
