The year is turning out to be a great year for my art...I won first place for the Gilroy Garlic Festival poster contest...I am very excited about that. It's cool to walk into the festival and see your art on the program, aprons, t-shirts and of course the poster : ) I will also have my booth there again this year, it should be a really fun time.
I started my first art show of the year at the Gilroy Assistance League's Home and Garden tour. That was a great place to begin my art shows this year. A beautiful country home in Gilroy surrounded by the hills and a lovely garden. I was joined on saturday by my friend Julie Franco, who is a very talented Gilroy artist. I think she will soon be sharing her art with the public too, and it is wonderful art that must be seen.
This saturday was the Gilroy Wine Stroll, which was also a fun event. We have a lot of great wineries in Gilroy, we are becoming a little Napa.
Next weekend is Fernwood Winery. I am really looking forward to this show. In a Redwood Grove with Wine, food, Chocolate, music and art, wow I love my job!
