Montage Monday and MAST

“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.” ― Henry Ward Beecher

******************

This past Saturday and Sunday was the annual McKinney Art Studio Tour. Local artists opened their homes and studios for visitors to experience their work in a hands-on manner. Personally, I find it more rewarding to own a piece of artwork from an artist who you have met and have seen where they work. And, the best part for me is, I happen to be very good friends with most of these talented folks. How lucky am I?

  
I purchased this beautiful cross from Alex Macias, a very young but extremely talented clay artist/potter. (I think the apple doesn’t fall far from the talent tree.)

  
Sherry Joplin has the most glorious holiday Santas, trees, and holiday gifts. (I am the proud owner of several keepsakes.)

  
Hi Steve Macias! What ya got cookin’? Oh yes, raku firing wonderful pottery.

   
 
“More” amazing artists. Yessss! A Laura Moore visit. We miss you Laura. 

Sherry, Laura, Lynda, and Lynne.

  
Elaine Adams does architectural renderings and paints homes that are so detailed, precise, and did I mention so reasonable.

      Thank you. Artists see the world in a different light…literally. Being an artist and writer, most of my friends are also. They are amazing people and I love them all. Writers are also wonderful artists because they share their soul with words.
