“A Fair to Remember”

That’s what they say about the York Fair, and they aren’t kidding!  Eric and I paid our second annual visit to the York Fair, and two orangeades, one lemonade, one bloomin’ onion, and one Italian sausage later, we emerged with a day of fun memories.  Here are some of the highlights that I found to be inspirational.  Some of the animals were truly food….for the imagination that is.

These sheep were the inspiration for a painting that I did last year after the York fair.  A lady at the fair let us hold two of her chickens and her white lion head rabbit. Does this picture of Eric and the chicken remind you of anything?

I think the fawn paintings are a little more poetic than these chicken pictures!  And now I’ll end with this picture that gets funnier with every view.  Check out the look on the rabbit’s face!

Have a great Monday everyone.  I hope you enjoyed seeing the York Fair through my eyes.  If you want more pictures, you can check out my Pigments of Imagination page on Facebook.  I’m about to post the rest.
