Market Day

Note: the blue cast on the photos is from his tent which is blue.
Aaron is participating in the "Summer Company" program where students returning to school in the fall start their own small business for the summer. This includes writing up a business plan along with all the other details that go into planning such a thing. He is selling his art and taking commissions for portraits at the Brockville Market. He is there three days a week, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. 8AM to 1 PM.
This is his third morning. If there is rain the market is closed. He has to deal with the wind though which can get pretty gusty off the St Lawrence whistling up through the buildings. with some simple engineering, he and Marty created a system that should keep him well secured for the season. This Tuesday was cool and sunny. Perfect.
With his leftover paint he has created little "Gallery Cards" for sale. He just did the miniature of Odelia. It's three inches square.
Each morning he is there, he plans on having a new piece to show. He has also got some cards coming made from photographs of some of his paintings.
The folks down at the market are very supportive of each other and he has received some encouraging words from passerby. A good beginning.
