The end of March my husband and I went to the Fine Art Expo in Scottsdale, Arizona. This is a ten week expo of sculpture, paintings, glass, bronze, and so much more.
It’s hard to choose favorites with all that amazing talent but two artists really stood out for me. The first one Kelby Love does animals. Fantastic animals. I talked to his mother a bit and she says he has a special technique that even experienced painters find amazing when they take his classes.
The next one also does animals among other things. Dick Mueller is a pencil artist who uses only graphite and colored pencil. I stood and watched him for awhile and he was amazing. I’ve tried working in colored pencil and he makes it look so easy. He said it is if you know what you’re doing. Truly inspiring.
The others that stand out are, of course, my friend and her family Kelly Smith Cassidy and Richard Smith. I’ve also watched Kelly working in her studio. She’s been working by her father’s side all of her life and it is truly amazing to watch. They do bronze and copper trees that are Amazing.
These photos are from the courtyard. A beautiful Arizona spring day.
My husband surprised me by pointing out this wagon would make an interesting writing prompt.
