The weather last weekend at the 2018 Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival was absolutely perfect, mornings cool (some said 'cold') and afternoons warmer.
The quality of the art was exceptional as always for this show. The attention to detail by the art festival committee is very professional and geared towards an artist focused event. Thank you all!
This year my work was selected for a Merit Award. In the show, the judges flag the artist booth for judging, but the artist must select the specific piece to bring into the judging room. Goodness, which child to pick? I brought a new image from my Antique Flower Series, "Trumpet Vine" shown here with the award ribbon.
Well now, does this mean I should start rehearsing my 5th annual retirement speech? According to several of my art show friends, it would be wise to leave the door at least partly open. So here I am, still doing some work, and then looking to leave in some choice shows. Thanks for your patience and your purchases!
