Autumn with Topsail

October 16 -17, 2010

(!!!They have accepted me again this year... crazy folk!!!)

Come to Topsail for one of the prettiest art festivals by the sea! For me Topsail conjures up fond memories of Pancake breakfasts, Seashells, Artists, BeckaWilder art & hoops, Perry playing the steel drums, dancing by the stage, rainy days & sunny days... it's been a fun time! Thanks for putting on a great show!
Located between pristine Atlantic Ocean Beaches and the Intercoastal,
 Autumn with Topsail offers live music, fair food, and children's activities.

Relax ~ Buy gifts and art from their makers.... go local...

Well, not at Topsail; but lovely!
Here is Kelly Jo of
Awesome Talent - see her for performance, hoops, lessons, etc.
She inspires my art!

Portrait Marathon 3 Happenin' at Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival of Music and Dance

Just in.... October 2010 I will be working at Shakori Hills painting!
 Shakori is an amazing music, art and dance festival. They take a green perspective with stewardship to the earth and feature an earthday parade with Paperhand Puppet Intervention...all nesstled in the pretty groves and hills and of the progressive community of Pittsboro, North Carolina.

The music lineup includes some of my favorites like Big Al Hall, Locos Por Juana, and the uber energetic Holy Ghost Tent Revival... oh and I hope to hear the vocals of Liz and Greg Humphries/Hobex....  washing the playa dust off of my favorite jumping boots now!
