We're only in April, but we've already seen the 90s and festival season is in full swing.
I've had a great start with winning awards from two shows. A judge;s award from the Deland Outdoor Art Festival in March and an honerable mention at the Tampa Bay Times Fine Arts and Crafts at the Florida Blueberry Festival in April. This is a exciting way to start 2017.
Next up will be a show at a beautiful botanical garden- Cedar Lake Woods and Gardens in Williston, Fl, not far from Gainsville. Can't wait to see the the place and spend some time with family after the show.
At the end of July, I'm traveling back to Wisconsin to one of my farovite places. the Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend to be in the Art and Chalk Festival. That sounds really interesting. I love chalk work, especially those trompe de l'oeil pieces that make you think the earth is opening up right there on the sidewalk.
August will be break-time before I start the fall season in September. It will be nice to spend some time at the beach and in the pool. I also have plans for some wall pieces I want to complete, so I' ll be keeping out of mischief.
