One Night in Laguna

Thanks to artist Fabrice Spies, Rachel and I were invited to attend the VIP Opening of the Festival of Arts in Laguna. This is Fabrice's 2nd year showing in this prestigious juried exhibition and his work did not disappoint. The gala reception had an "Old Hollywood" theme and we did our best to look the part. Great crowd, great time, great art. Way to go Fab!

All dolled up WITH someplace to go!

Fabrice with his parents, who came all the way from France. 
Fabrice's mother-in-law figured out how to print one of his paintings on a cookie as gifts for his guests. Yum!
We LOVE red dots! Congratulations, Bibi!
Fab's painting "Surf Shop" is also featured on merchandise for sale as part of this year's Festival. Awesome PR, and comfortable, too!
