Betsy Everitt for Incognito

  For the 5th year running, Betsy Everitt participated in the annual Santa Monica Museum of Art’s 10th annual Exhibition and Benefit Art Sale, 'Incognito'.  'The Art World Up For Grabs' get's it's name, INCOGNITO because all works are signed on the back--the artists’ identities revealed only after purchase!  Betsy says, "It is a very special and super fun community event (complete with celebrity sightings!) which helps to fund the museum's free exhibitions.  My submissions have sold every year, including this one!"  To see more of Betsy's wonderfully delightful illustrations please take a peek at her updated portfolio here.

Happy Day by Betsy Everitt
