Indian Wells Arts Festival was fantastic
I won first place in watercolor for "Hot as a Heartbeat." I also won a ribbon for Best Local Artist presented by a local chain of high-end gourmet grocery stores called Jensen's. In addition to the ribbon, Jensen's wants to sell my cards in their stores. Yay! I sold lots of my mini oils. I sold prints and note cards and a watercolor. I got a commission to paint a BMW and was asked to design a logo for a car company. Saw lots of friends, made new ones and had a wonderful weekend. From another source I got a request today from the Chairman of a Date Growers Group to do a painting for him....date related I'm sure...waiting to hear back. This is going to be a great year!
