There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes.
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...

-Lord Byron

The Carefree Art & Wine festival

Sunday morning and the television was on the local news. I was sipping coffee and really paying no attention, the sound keeps me company.

I hear about a sand sculpture artist that will be in Carefree, Arizona, working on his newest project. That information alone was enough for me to take a road trip. North of the town of Scottsdale and world away from the hubbub of Phoenix I find the Carefree Art & Wine Festival.
I pay my three dollar entrance fee and am handed a glass of wine to accompany me as I stroll down the art walk.
Local artisans showcase work in different mediums; film, bronze, oil based paints, watercolors, clay....
Local flair and flavor highlight the event, from Southwestern themes to Native American culture...
Carefree represents these artists in fine fashion.
