2017 Sip 'n Stroll Mug Artwork Selected
Posted on 10/4/2017 7:56:00 AM.
(Seguin) -- The 2017 Sip 'n Stroll will feature the Park Plaza Hotel in honor of the building turning 100 years old and recently a piece submitted by Liz Romero was selected to adorn the mug. The annual holiday tradition of Sip 'n Stroll started seven years ago where visitors to downtown brandishing an official Sip 'n Stroll mug can sample dozens of hot chocolates at downtown merchants. Each year the mug features a piece of artwork of a local landmark, with previous years featuring the Texas Theatre, Central Park, the Power Plant, and Sebastopol House.
 
After releasing a call for artwork, eight pieces were received from area artists. The Sip 'n Stroll Planning Committee reviewed the artwork and selected Liz Romero's artwork due to its detail and unique character.
 
"I was shocked," said Romero about finding out her piece was selected, "There was a lot of competition this year and they were all very good. I just thought it would be fun and an exciting challenge."
 
The acrylic painting on a wood panel was Romero's second downtown building she painted. Her first building to paint was Gift & Gourmet during the Seguin Art League's Paint Out held during Pecan Fest 2016.
 
"I took several photos of the hotel and fell in love with the evening shots, the way the lighting picked up the architectural details in evenings made it an exciting project," said Romero.
 
Romero started painting while in high school and then took a hiatus while she worked. After retiring a few years ago, she joined the Seguin Art League and started painting again. Romero is currently serving as the President of the Seguin Art League.
 
"I had several teachers after joining the art league," said Romero, "They taught me how to use a variety of mediums."
 
The 2017 Sip 'n Stoll mugs will be available for purchase beginning October 28 at the Pecan Fest Trade Days and then at downtown merchants until December 1.
 
Make plans to stroll through downtown on Friday, December 1 from 5:30 to 8:30 to enjoy a variety of delicious homemade hot chocolates. Special By Kyle Kramm
