Garlic Festival Cook-Off Blast 2011

Wow! It's been such a great summer! My Crew and I, Mike and Kristina, made it through another Garlic Festival and it was a blast. Besides winning first place in the poster contest this year, I did a special project for the Garlic Festival Cook-Off. I was honored to be asked to paint 14, 5" x 7" watercolors. One original each for the eight contestents, and the five judges. A Special box was created to hold the painting and all of the other goodies they received. The Garlic festival then printed some of the selected paintings to give as gifts to their sponsors. My gift for doing this special task was to be able to sit on the stage at the Cook-Off with my husband Mike, My dear Kristina and my lovely daughter Kyle. We got treated royally, we were forced to drink the wonderful wine and taste all of the contestents amazing food!!!! Glad we didn't have to judge, it was really all too good to have picked just one winner. It was such a fun and exciting experience, I really tried to be in the moment on that one!On top of all that excitment, I had my art booth set up in the arts and crafts area and was signing posters, so it was a whirlwind weekend! We all had a great time, and sales were good ; )
