The winner is... this happy Saquaro Christmas Ornament.
Once again, Arizona Highways Magazine has chosen an item of mine to feature in their 2017 Holiday Gift Guide, which comes out the first of November. Actually, a pair of Saguaros will be featured: one smiling, one singing. So, even though it's Summertime, it seems to me like Christmas is right around the corner! It's time to get busy!!
2 Southwest Nativities in their prize winning settings. My new terra cotta Sedona Nativity.
2016 Christmas my terracotta Nativity Ornament was featured in the Arizona Highways' Holiday Gift Guide. And, 2015, my Christmas Javelina in a Santa hat took center stage. He can now be found foraging around the Javelina Section or with the ornaments. The Javelina ornaments were also featured in the Sedona Monthly magazine's December 2014 issue. It was hard to keep up with all the requests for them at the Sedona Arts Center. Those little "not a piggies" are so popular!
2014, my Southwest Nativity Set in the Arizona Highways' Holiday Gift Guide was a huge success, a total of 61 sets were ordered, that's 610 little figures! I feel very honored that they continue to choose my works for their publication.
As for paintings... "Two Flutes", was in the March 2013 issue of "The Artist's Magazine". It
was one of ten winners in the international "Over 60" competition.
