Festival of Arts, artists begin space construction

I got my space assignment for this summer's Festival of Arts, very exciting!  Construction on the Festival grounds has begun.  I was able to see my 16 foot long "wall" framed out today.  It is still somewhat quiet on the grounds, but it will get very busy by next weekend.  For those of you who visit the Festival of Arts and Pageant of the Masters, I thought you might find it interesting to see some pictures as we prepare for the opening June 30th.  The Festival as well as the Pageant theater, is located at base of Laguna Canyon on a six-acre site.

Paris Cafe

"Paris Cafe," oil on hardboard, 6"x6" - Sold
Working from photographs I took in Paris last year, here is a new little cafe painting.

(Update...I brought this painting (still a bit wet) to the Balboa Island Artwalk yesterday.  It sold to a wonderful lady who went to Paris this past January to celebrate her birthday with her husband.  She had a very happy emotional response when she saw this painting.  It's that kind of connection we artists love to hear and hope for!)
