Art in the Park

Today was Art in the Park in Petoskey. It is an annual event held rain or shine. Downtown Pennsylvania Park is covered with booths of different artists and so many kinds of art! Jewelry, paintings, glassworks, woodworks, ceramics, and photography are only a few of the different types of art represented here. But one of my favorites is Sue Bleyaert of Creative Canvas. She makes floorcloths of canvas, hand paints them, and finishes them so that they are both decorative and practical. I have one of her designs that she custom-made for me over 10 years ago and it is wonderful! I have mine as a cover for my dining room table so it gets a lot of use and is beautiful. This new design below is my favorite in her booth this year. Sue has been featured in books about floorcloths and she has a website: Be sure to check it out!! She makes floorcloths and tablecovers as well as coasters and placemats. I can highly recommend her products!
