My 4th year at the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival (WPSAF) was my best yet!  My image titled ‘The Lonely Palm‘ was honored with an ‘Award of Excellence’!  This same image will be the poster art for the Ocala Arts Festival in October.

As many of you know, I began my career in the arts as an ‘Emerging Artist’ in 2010 Winter Park show, where I had a fantastic crowd response and sellout weekend.  Returning every year is an important emotional milestone.

The crowds were enthusiastic and packed as always.  Last year (2013) I did not attend the show, but my returning patrons were excited too see that I had an all new body of work on display.  The new SunRail Trail was on display for tours behind me, which unfortunately ran its massive diesel generators all weekend.  The festival staff eventually had the train move Sunday morning, and I had one of my best shows ever!

Next week, I’m off to Texas, and then back for the Mainsail, Melbourne, and Mayfair by the Lake art festivals in April.  See you there!
