Key Peninsula Art Walk

I’m taking part in the Kitsap Peninsula Art Walk for the first time.   It will be good to see all of you since I’ve been feeling like I dropped off the face of the earth after our move from Horseshoe Lake to Gig Harbor.  I think you’ll enjoy all the venues so come on down, I’d love to see you.  I'll be at Sunnycrest Nursery along with a great group of other artists.  It's on the right, as you drive into Key Center.  Happy Summer~Pat
