Becoming (16 x 24, watercolor on silver shikishi, available at Horizon Fine Art.)
Hello Art Lovers,

Guilty. I got caught up in summer, a glorious season here. And now we are well into the whirlwind that is our 11 day Fall Arts Festival here in Jackson Hole. Every arts venue has special events and the next event I will be involved in is the Quick Draw, on the Town Square, on Saturday, September 14. It starts promptly at 9 am, rain, shine, sleet, freezing or sweltering. The forecast this year is for GOOD WEATHER! Forty invited artists have 90 minutes to complete a work of art, frame it, and then it is presented in a very fun and lively auction under a big block long tent along side the Town Square. PLEASE come say hi and watch the magic. (I tell people it is all smoke and mirrors. Seeing it in person will prove otherwise.) After the auction I will be demonstrating at Horizon Fine Art (30 King Street) in the afternoon and again on Sunday during the Farewell to Fall Arts Festival Brunch Artwalk from 11-3.
