Artfest Starts This Friday!

[singlepic id=413 w=460 h=240 float=] Artfest is upon us! Opening this Friday at noon, it runs through Sunday. I'll be there as usual (still don't know what booth!) with new pastels and oil paintings, including my new Teacup Oils - little 6" x 6" x 2" canvases painted on five sides and named after delicious tea flavors both real and imaginary. (Pomegranate Twist, Chamomile Bliss and Guava Mint are shown above)

Something new: this year I will be donating 1% of art festival sales to the ASPCA. I'm calling it my ASPCA Summer of Love. I get asked for a lot of donations every summer from various arts organizations, many of which I know nothing about. This year I decided to choose where my donations went. Since I love animals enough not to eat or wear them, the ASPCA seemed like a good place to start. More on this later.

In the meantime, come to Artfest, enjoy the day, and support the arts by buying real art from real artists!
