I hit the ground running this May. First, Maysville had their annual Art Walk. Seven banners of my work were hung in the Second street mall. The art walk was well attended. It was nice to see so many friends.
Me and the great Maysville folks who are making the Cultural Arts District happen in Maysville.
The show is right on the river, facing Cincinnati. Where we could watch the Reds game (they won BTW). It was a great show! The folks in Covington really make their artists feel welcome. After each show, they have a party for the artists in a beautiful lawn with incredible food.
Immediately after the show, I drove to Georgia to spend a day with my family. My little brother is leaving for Iraq soon, and the family needed to get together.
I hurried back to Kentucky to get ready for the May’s Lick Asparagus Festival. Every year, the festival has an art contest. My entry was my first attempt at an animation. IT WON FIRST PLACE!!! You can see it on youTube here:
The next day after the Asparagus festival, was the Wyoming Art Show. There was a little bit of rain, but a remarkable turnout, good sales, and I WON THE OUTSIDE EXHIBITOR AWARD!
I had my bike, map and other artifacts from my recent trip…along with a new major painting…
