April is a busy month for me as I check off art festivals one weekend after another. Last weekend was in the beautiful tennis gardens in Indian Wells. What a lovely weekend it was! After my tent survived the epic wind storm (though a few others did not) the weather was warm and calm. Met some great folks and even was awarded a third place ribbon for painting. All in all I give last weekend a thumbs up.
And now I head to the Oasis Visitors Center in 29 Palms for the 25th Annual Joshua Tree National Park Art Festival. The weather forecast? Wind. I guess that is something to get used to out here in the California desert. We will be sheltered by a building, so hopefully nobody’s art goes flying into the cacti. See y’all there!
Later this month, a one day Arts and Crafts show in downtown Joshua Tree on the 23rd (where the farmers market is held) and Mission Federal ArtWalk in San Diego, April 29th and 30th.
May is looking to be a bit quieter.
