Napa Valley Mustard Festival

Saturday evening, January 31, you'll find me at the Culinary Institute in St Helena and I won't be cooking dinner.
One of my paintings was chosen for the 2 month long event and the kickoff or "mustard magic" will be held that night.
I know the image was already published in a previous post, but of course must post again to keep all abreast of the actual work selected. Called "Fall Vineyard" it measures 12x24" and is oil paint and gold leaf on canvas. Anyone interested can bid on it at auction at the previously mentioned event. See you there!

signs of spring?

But isn't it January? Yesterday's high temperature's were in the 80 degree range. Something's wrong with that picture.
Around these parts we're talking Mustard Festival. Don't know much more that that really- I'll have to fill you in later if you'll come back as I find out more about this Napa Valley extravaganza...(say that with a european accent, please) What I do know is that I entered my work in the art competition...stay tuned and here's a sample of what I entered. Wish me luck.

hello again

A new year makes me so happy. It feeds into everything that makes me smile and enjoy my life. New year, new start, change.
I lerve change. I know this creeps some people out, but I do. Reorganize those closets, change around that filing system, color the hair! Read my horoscope recently and I don't remember the source but according to some genius astrologer, despite the countries economic problems, my year as an artist and a virgo should be booming! Can't wait! Bring it on!
On that note, I'm entering an art competition with the Napa Valley Mustard Festival folks and will likely know by the end of Jan if I'm in or out- wish me luck.
