Art the the Green is an annual Event in Couer de Alene, Idaho. We have been there several times over the years and we were able to go again this last weekend. It is a blast! With over 135 artists there is an incredible amount of talent to be inspired by, a lot of people to have fun with and talk to and when you are with friends, or if see people you know here at the park on a beautiful day like the day we were there, life simply could not be much better. We were fortunate to have done both!
We began our day on the grounds of NIC, North Idaho College.
The man in the orange shirt is doing this event in style. He is wearing a cap with a solar collector on top that turn a fan hooked to the front of his cap. He collects the sun's rays and this turns the fan which blows on his face and keeps him cool.
Handful of Luvin' (<-- click here, listen to their tunes and you will want to dance too!)
..and there was lots and lots of art..
The Colorburst guy let me take his photograph.
The next thing I knew, I was shrinking....
just kidding..... though I did feel a little bit like Alice.... in a wonderland of beautiful arts and crafty things.
Here is the Art on the pavement part, not really called that, of course... nor is it called "art on the brown"... though parts of it could have been called ust that, if you ask me....
but here we are on the streets in Couer de' Alene::
There were many interesting vendors...
like Uncle Stinky's Magic Shoppe... andSome potions by a Doctor.. (um,,, what's his name?)
but then the beauty of the lake and sky could simply carry you away as well....
if you let it.
