I only thought this one was finished, but I was looking at it again today and I see just a few minor details I would like to add and/or change. So the final final version is still to come.
Meanwhile, I had some very exciting news today. Back in February I submitted my application to the Red River Revel annual arts festival, the largest outdoor arts festival in North Louisiana, held every October at the riverfront in Shreveport and attracting 180,000-plus visitors over an eight-day period. It’s a pretty big deal around here. Visual artists are juried in, and I’ve been holding my breath waiting to see if I got in. Well, I got my acceptance letter in today’s mail and I’m SOOOOOO excited!
So, okay kids, mark your calendars for October 4-11, and plan to come to the Red River Revel for food, fun, music and ART! Be sure to introduce yourself when you get to my booth, so I’ll know it’s you.
It’s going to be VERY busy summer; I’ve got a LOT of painting to do by October.
Did I mention that I’m excited?
