The 2016 Double Decker Arts Festival in our hometown of Oxford, MS was my BEST so far! Thank you to everyone who came to my booth, who encouraged me, who came last year or the year before and came AGAIN- wow so humbling, and especially to those of you who supported me by purchasing a piece of art -its because of you guys that i can continue painting and pushing myself to explore different ways to express all that is inside of me!! I have so much hope and excitement for the next season and i have many ideas to get onto the canvas!!
I'll just list some highlights of the day so i'll remember and be able to go back whenever i need some encouragement or just to smile and think back on that wonderful day...
