I’m finally getting around to writing about the Festival of Art we had here on Catalina Island, September 21, 22 & 23. It was a beautiful weekend (which is no big surprise here in Southern California) though some complained that it was too hot. Being originally from the east coast, where this summer it was scorchingly hot and humid, I thought it was perfect. Not to mention, the nice warm to hot weather we’ve had this summer made the ocean water a refreshing 74 degrees F. I was actually just swimming at Lover’s Cove Marine Preserve a couple of hours ago with my daughter, Mom & Dad and the water was crystal clear and the perfect temperature! But, I digress.
I was so honored this year to receive an Honorable Mention for my tile jewelry from the Catalina Art Association! Awards are given for the categories Fine Painting, Fine Jewelry, Fine Crafts and Photography. I love the Art Festival each September here on Catalina Island. I get to see so many islanders and fellow artists who are normally too busy in the summer for socializing (the winter here is another story – there’s plenty of free time).
Now that the Art Festival is over, it’s time to enjoy the warm ocean water for a few more weeks before it becomes too cold and meanwhile, start gearing up for the holidays!
Hope you are having a great day!
