Mugshot #10 - Betsy "Eagle Eye" Stevenson

I had the good fortune of sitting with Betsy at Karin's workshop. No need to worry about Betsy "Eagle Eye" Stevenson "gang" status as she is a beautiful southern lady in every way. And, besides she may not be driving a reliable car, so she won't be able to catch you if you should feel the need to escape her shutter snaps.

Sedona Arizona Art Show is on!

As a member of the Hilton Head Gang, I am proud to announce that we, as a notorious gang, are hanging with Karin Jurick at the Sedona Arts Center. Well, at least our art is hanging with her art in a show entitled "A Sense of Place". 

The show opened today and will continue to run through February 14, with an ArtWalk and opening reception on February 3. So if you are in the Sedona area, please stop by and support the arts.

Thanks to my friend Regula Sheifele for allowing us to use her sign, and check out her blog, amazing works.

Mugshot #9 - Chris "the Moniker" Werst

Chris "the Moniker" Werst is notorious among our gang, as she befriends the unsuspecting, immortalizes them digitally, and then she is gone. As of this post, she remains blog-less!

Sedona Arts Center Exhibition

We, the Hilton Head Gang, have been asked to participate in the Sedona Arts Center Exhibition, and I am happy to report an outstanding number of the gang have committed to submit their best. Our pieces are part of the "A Sense of Place" Field Expeditions show representing a workshop taken with Karin Jurick.

The show's opening is January 25, with a special exhibition on Sedona's "First Friday" Artwalk and reception on February 3. The exhibit will continue through February 14th.

My submission is entitled "Grounded", a 6 x 6 oil on panel, framed in a Randy Higbee "Durango" Floater Frame.  This piece can be purchased by visiting the show at the Sedona Arts Center, Arizona, or by calling Vince Fazio at 928.282.3809.

Mugshot #8 - Nancy "The Guradian" Darling

Nancy "The Guardian" Darling is a hero to me. Dogs are my heart, and Nancy works with rescue dogs. I heard she and her pack are on their way to the Iditarod. Nancy if you read this, please take Sully Freebird, my Samoyed, and me along. I promise we will be good....

This lovely young lady's kite may be grounded for the moment, but what will seem like a whisper of a moment, her kite will be sailing high....

Mugshot #7 - Roxanne "the Streak" Duke

Of all the mugshots I have painted since November, painting myself proved to be the most difficult. The challenge proved to be seeing only shapes, and not to see my mom's lips, nor my dad's nose, and  especially, the avoidance of seeing the "Oops there went gravity" signs.
