La Jolla Festival of the Arts

I'm going to be at the 25th Annual La Jolla Festival of the Arts this weekend, 6/18-6/19. Looking forward to it- it should be a nice weekend for art, with proceeds supporting a great cause. I'll be in booth 308, so if you're in the area, stop on by and say 'hi'. My Facebook site has a couple of coupons and promotions for this event- just follow the link, like the page, then go to the Fan Offer. Enjoy!

From the festival website:
"The purpose of the La Jolla Festival of the Arts is to raise funds that support sports and recreation programs for San Diegans with disabilities. Some of the programs include adaptive snow skiing, karate, wheelchair road racing, camping, wheelchair tennis, water skiing, quadriplegic rugby, therapeutic horseback riding, and art and education programs. We also fund rehabilitative programs for disabled veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. "

More Oaks from Warner Springs

Here are two more from our trip to Warner Springs. These two are painted at the intersection of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) and the California Hiking and Riding Trail (CHRT). My husband and kids hiked up the PCT for a half-day hike to Eagle Rock, and I stayed and painted.
We really had great weather while we were out there. It seems like it could get hot in the summer, but we hit it just right.
