The 2011 San Diego County Fair is just around the corner! I'll be first in line at breakfast time for my favorite chocolate covered bacon...then catch a quick pig race...then it must be time for a twelve-clove garlic chicken sandwich...back over to Bing Crosby Hall to check out the latest in kitchen gadgets... What? You don't do all of these things? Then how about a great "Exhibition of Fine Art"? Special events this year include a chalk art contest, plein air painting contest, small image contest, and several daily art demonstrations. You can literally spend the entire day immersed in the arts.
Painted in soft pastel on sandpaper, Poppy Party is one of my entries in the "Exhibition of Fine Art." Measuring 12" x 16" it is framed in wide dark wood with UV/non-glare museum glass. Priced at $375 + $40 to ship anywhere in the continental U.S. or Canada.
