I have been invited to be the FEATURED ARTIST for the 2019 International Crane Festival in Lodi, California. This 3-day festival celebrates the Sandhill Cranes that use the Central Valley of California for their winter home. There will be field trips and lectures, an exhibition hall and an art show with many artists showing photos and paintings.
I will have a central location in that show where I will exhibit many of my sumi paintings and paintings with my handmade paints and brushes, all of cranes!
