What a wonderful experience this weekend in Worland, Wyoming for the Washakie Museum & Cultural Center’s Mammoth QuickDraw & Rotary fundraiser! 450+ people in attendance and I enjoyed meeting quite a number of them. I am so looking forward to next year. Drawing in front of so many people was challenging but it was so fun to witness the engagement between artists and art-enthusiasts during the actual process.
Folks, there are 5 of my own pieces still hanging in the Washakie Museum until mid January. They are for sale and a percentage of their sales will go to the museum. It was a pleasure to be part of this event.
... and fall approaches, the itch to draw, paint and create grows! I have taken the summer to gather reference materials and am ready to begin planning my commission work for the winter. In Wyoming, the tips of the apple trees outside my front door are changing to red and I can no longer ignore them. Days are already getting notably shorter. Torture it is to know that warm days will be getting cooler and my horses' coats will be growing fuzzier... but with the cold brings livelier times in my studio... the part I do not dread in the least!
