Cubs Fan

A little late to this party, but this is my submission to the DPW "Seated Figure" Challenge. I found this Cubs fan in Florida!

"A Sense Of Place" - Sedona AZ - Now Open

Karin Jurick's workshop class from Hilton Head has sent in our paintings from (really) around the world, to hang together at the Sedona Arts Center Show, "A Sense Of Place", now open.  So if you are in the area, I promise you a visually enchanting experience, should you be able to visit!  The Hilton Head Gang have entered, almost as a whole.  And we are a Force to be reckoned  with!  Our Swiss friend Regula Sheifele, one of the HHG, made this beautiful sign and I 'borrowed it' for my post!  Check out her work HERE.


Now that I have a few mugs under my belt, I felt I needed to go back to the beginning and redo a few of my first ones. This is our notorious leader, Karin Jurick, posing with her 'just busted' look. I like this version better than the one I did a month ago.

Nancy "The Guardian" Darling
This is part of the Hilton Head Gang series. I was lucky enough to sit right next to Nancy during the KJ workshop. She does amazing paintings and was very helpful and encouraging to me.

Week 8 finds us looking for Nancy “The Guardian” Darling so named because of her help with rescue dogs.  She often travels with a large pack of dogs which hampers her ability to shoot but that does not prevent her from trying.  She uses the dogs to attract unsuspecting subjects then while they are being distracted...she shoots.  It is a devious but very effective plan.  I hear she and her pack will be heading up to Alaska to participate in the Iditarod...that may be a false lead...just be on the lookout... You may find more clues to her whereabouts on her blog...

The source for this painting was taken by my sister-in-law who gave me permission to paint from it. I couldn't resist this one!
