I found out a bit ago that they won't be doing the large Italian Street Painting Festival in San Rafael this year. They'll be doing it every other year, and on the alternate years they will be doing a smaller event called a "Pop-up Gallery". For this event, they will be closing down one street instead of two, and will be hosting a small group of invited artists to do large paintings.
Yesterday I received an invitation to join the event, it made my day! The theme for it is "California in the 1940's." I have to submit my proposed design in a few days, so if you guys have any good ideas of things that would fit the theme, let me know!
