One of the festival artists, Latvian artist Larisa Aukon, www.aukonlarisa.com, will be staying at my house for the week - and artist Joe Garcia, www.joegarcia.com, and his wife, Anne, will also be here for the festival. Artist Susan Faust www.susanfaust.com, will also be painting with us! So it will be a busy week - painting all day then washing down the bugs and dust with a glass or two of wine in the evenings while discussing the joy and challenges of our day's work.
I painted this piece last year in uptown Sedona and was honored to receive the Curt Walter's Award.

Painting plein air is so much more fun when you share it with good friends.
