The Carmel Art Festival takes place this week. About 60 artists from around the country will gather in Carmel for the annual festival which kicks off this coming Wednesday evening. We’ll spend 2 days painting in Monterey County. I plan on making at least 1 trip down to Rocky Point along highway 1. Each artist is allowed to show 2 paintings from their 2 days of painting. The show and sale takes place Saturday. The quick draw event takes place Sunday morning. My work received the “Best of Show” award in 2006 and “Artist’s Choice” and “People’s Choice” awards in 2007. Hope to see you there.
