My featured guest artist for January: Minnie Watkins

I can't think of a better way to start the new year than with old friends.  What better beginning than with the guest artist who started it all, my very good friend Minnie Watkins.  She has been like an older sister to me all my life.  She was the one who gave me my first real art supplies, and in recent years she has taken the time to introduce me to other artists.  I wish I could do more to repay her, but for now the best I can do is to feature her work in my studio as my first guest artist of the new year.

Minnie has created some amazing new pieces since she last showed her work in my studio in October 2010.  Every new painting is even better than the last, and that's saying a lot because her work is impressive to begin with.





This is the kind of work you just have to see in person.  I hope you will come to the open studio.  It will probably be very cold that night, but I plan to serve some refreshments that will keep you warm.  Here are all the details:
