Equine Expo Show with Weatherford Art Association, Vonnie Kohn
Whew! What a busy November it's been. A trio of members from our art guild (Karon Richardson, Julie Lawther, and myself) hosted a booth at the Teskey's Equine Expo in Weatherford, Texas early this month. In Texas, we are experiencing an unseasonal heat in the month of November. My "summer tan" came a little late during this show..aka, "boiled lobster" status. We had much fun, good sales, and a raffle which was a fund raiser for our art group. It included 3 (excited) winners for a Christmas ornament with a painted horse (or small pet) of the owner. There was also a re-enactment group (with a jail) next to our booth & a Country/ Western band to provide entertainment. I was careful not to get some time in "jail." What a good day for sharing our art with others.
I'm on a journey ...one which involves keen observation, traveling, listening to the inner muse, painting the beauty of God's creation!
The smell of oils, the challenge of new ideas, delicately balancing all I have learned in the process--spells adventure and another moment of learning.
Come with me; share the journey...
