I have tried to get into the Cherry Creek Art Festival for over 13 years. I have walked through the festival and I can not believe I have never been accepted. I instead have gone have done the art shows in the past in Brekenridge and for the last several years Fresco. I am continued asked why am I not in the Cherry Creek Art Festival. My work is in 8 different galleries throughout the United States, and I have a European following. I am amazed at the response to my paintings, especially since I started using a pallett knife. I have had many articles written about me, last one American Art Collector June issue.
