CFUMC Festival of the Arts 2013

This is the third year that I am proud to be a part of the Cumming First United Methodist Church Arts Festival.  The festival takes place for a full two weeks this year, and I am thrilled to have two of my recent paintings in the show.

The Orange Shirt

The festival includes a full music program as well.   I highly recommend visiting this beautiful church and enjoying the program.  The show is massive, a huge undertaking, and the staff does an amazing job of bringing it all together.
