We were delighted when the decision was made that we could ask an artist to return for a second poster. And equally delighted when Paul Fortis agreed to render us another gorgeous pastel. After depicting the starting line in 2006 we thought the finish line in lovely Capitola was appropriate. Paul delivered us a stunning piece of art. The poster was unveiled to a collective “Ahhh” as the crowd got it’s first view of his masterful artwork. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we all do! A little history about Paul. He knew early that he had talent, he received a Bachelor of Fine Art in painting & printmaking at UCSC & has been creating fine art for over 30 years. His works have appeared in numerous solo & group exhibitions. Among these exhibitions is the Santa Cruz Open Studios, in which Paul has participated since 1988.
