coasters tonight, and started working on
this poster. It is for entry in the annual
Natchitoches Christmas Festival poster
contest. I posted the sketch awhile back,
and now I am starting to block in the
painted areas. I am using acrylic paint on
a piece of watercolor paper.
The annual festival poster has been a
tradition for 30 years. The selected artwork
becomes the property of the Natchitoches
Arts Council, and they print the posters for
the festival. I know many people in the
town collect the posters, and the originals
are on display at the City Hall Annex on
Fourth Street in downtown Natchitoches.
This is the first time I have ever entered.
I have seen the winning posters for many
years, and know many of the artists represented.
I know it seems early to be dealing with
Christmas themes, but believe me, it will be
here again before we know it!
