The 2017 Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival awarded me the $5,000 Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation Award. The piece they selected is the image described in my post below...."Roots." What an amazing honor!! I am so pleased that the judges felt that my etching of a live oak tree fit the philosophy of the Foundation and its endeavors. Naturally, I'm still overwhelmed by receiving this prize. The photo is of the Foundation President David Odahowski and me. Plus the ribbon, of course.
So, I guess this wasn't my last art show. I'll be at this show again next year. Perhaps I'll also do a few more shows here and there as the spirit moves me. If I do, the shows will be posted here. Or if you wish to be on my email list, send me the information and a message through the contact link above.
My thanks to everyone who came to my booth at the show and purchased a piece of my artwork. I hope it gives you as much joy as I had in creating it.
