Danville Fine Arts Faire--June 2006

This was our first time at the Danville Fine Arts Faire, and Cheryl's first trip to Danville ever. The weekend of the Faire was in the middle of a heatwave, so the main story of the week for all the artists was dealing with 102-degree weather while sitting on hot asphalt. Fortunately we had umbrellas and all the cold drinks we could remember to get for ourselves.
 
The artwork we chose to do is by Victorian painter Lord Frederic Leighton, a neoclassicist often grouped with the Pre-Raphaelite movement of the mid-1800s.
