Denham Springs Fine Art Association Fall Art Show Results

DSFAA 2014 Fall Themed Show  “Color Emotions” 

Ferris:  Congratulations on a wonderful show. I enjoy themed shows immensely.  Everyone’s creativity is centered around that theme.  So hopefully you enjoy my decisions, it’s a great show, and always an honor to come see ya’ll. And I’ll end with a quote from my friend and yours ‘Pablo Picasso’….”The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away”.
Thank you all for finding your gift and for sharing it with all of us.  Ferris.
