Painting the people at Wednesday Market May 24, 2017

Painting the people at Wednesday Market near Stephen's Farm booth today, May 24, 2017. Lots of peoplle but few vegetables. All the crops are very late this year because of the wet and cold Spring in Oregon. Only about half the booths are filled. Kara Wilde, John Lehman, and Paul Lockhart were also painting the people today.
