Avocado on the Side (pastel) by 

12 × 18 chalk pastel on cad yellow Canson Mi-Teintes paper, image of one of Fallbrook’s finest

Fallbrook, California is affectionately known as “The Avocado Capital of the World.” The town celebrates each year with the annual “Avocado Festival,” which will be held downtown on Sunday, April 17th.

This is the first year I’ll be participating in the “Art of the Avocado” contest and the “Avenue of the Arts” section of the festival with a booth.

If you’ve never tasted avocado ice cream, it’s surprisingly delicious! It goes great with the almond champagne also offered at the festival…
