I'm heading down to Florida in February. It will be nice to get away from the snow and cold.....and hopefully, David and I will have some adventures along the way. Right now I'm working on lots of new art and livin' the studio life.....
First up.....Mt Dora Arts Festival. February 3rd and 4th. Mt. Dora is a cute little town close to Orlando with a very dedicated police department......Don't worry, you won't have any trouble but us exhibitors are held to a higher standard...they can get a little intense. I have done this show before, in fact the last time was in 2014. I actually won a nice award last time. Time to try it again.
Then...Delray Beach Cornell Museum Art Fair, February 10th and 11th I have never done this show, in fact it's relatively new and I guess you could say a filler show...Except being that it's a museum show, it should be a class act...they usually are. The best thing about this show is that I get to hang out with Audrey Hanowitz who I taught with at LAS and I haven't seen in a few years. That, I can't wait for.
Then we head down to the Coconut Grove Arts Festival February 17th, 18th, and 19th. Coconut Grove is a Big Daddy Show...always has been. I did it back in 2013 and it was great. In fact, I did it in 1985 also with Baker Morefield and Scott Bishop and it was great then too. It also was a little more affordable then too. In 2013 I did three shows in a row by myself and it was kind of brutal...I haven't done them since because of the drive and cost but decided now, since I now have my own personal roadie,(David).....It was time to try it again. Last time I came to the show, the Ricaldo-Muench family came from Mexico to see me...I had taught their daughter Ana Paula and son Pablo at LAS. It was so amazing and I definitely felt the love.....Hope that this year doesn't disappoint.
So, If you hang out in Florida for the Winter, or if you live somewhere in this sunny state. Try to hit me up at one of these shows in February. I promise I won't disappoint.
