Indian Wells Arts Festival First Place

"Heaven is a '57" won first place for watercolor at this weekend's Indian Wells Arts Festival. I was so thrilled. It couldn't have been a more perfect weekend. Beautiful weather, beautiful setting, fantastic music and food.... lots of friends and well-wishers dropping by to say hello...not to mention sales :-} One of the best times of my life. Will be a great memory for years to come.
Thank you to all who made it possible.
Don’t forget to vote for the ’57 Chevy in the American Artist watercolor competition. I only need 230 votes to get to first place! Go to http://watercolor.americanartistcompetitions.com/bin/Rate?image_id=1005400035
