Yikes. September is almost upon us. Every year, the ninth month seems to mark a turning point. It brings the end of the summer schedule, the beginning of the school year (for most), the turning of the leaves... but that isn't what I am talking about. It's the change of perspective.
During the lazy days of summer, we bask in the complacency of long hot days, icy cold drinks, sleeveless nights, the lapping of the water, the sizzle of the sidewalk, the jingle of the ice cream truck and the scream of the rides at the fair. It is a blur, it is warm, it is comfortable.
But when September rolls around, we suddenly find ourselves looking forward to cold starry nights, hot fires, and the warmth of family. We pick up the pace, we focus our eyes on a higher horizon, start planning out how we are going to make this holiday season/school year/fiscal end different.
We realized today that, after Labor Day, we have several "no event" Fridays at our usual spot at the Huntington Beach Pier Art-A-Faire. How are we going to make up for that lost opportunity?
We'd better not wait until September to figure it out. Time to mobilize.
So, we are offering a 15% discount on any corporate or private event which is booked between now and October 2. What a great opportunity to get started early on your holiday planning, or to throw one really awesome party to celebrate the end of summer!
We would love to make summer last just a little longer....with you :)
P.S. We will be at the Huntington Beach Pier on the following dates:
Labor Day Weekend September 4-7
October - December many dates To Be Announced!!
"Gel-Git" is a Turkish phrase meaning "back and forth," and is the name of the basic chevron-like water marbling design formed by pulling the rake, comb or stylus back and forth through the paint.
We hope that this phrase will also describe our relationship with you and the many other folks with whom we have enjoyed sharing this beautiful art form.
Please feel free to contact us at any time with your photos, ideas, questions, event inquiries, or custom orders.
Star McCain and Philip Greenwood took a leap of faith, abandoning lucrative professional careers to follow their dream of working together to share the joy and beauty of water marbling on silk with others.
