Over 100 artists will exhibit and sell their original work in painting, ceramics, photography, woodworking, drawing, metal, glass, jewelry, fiber, and more!

In conjunction with the Holiday Thieves' Market the Fine Arts Council presents their annual wine tasting featuring Iowa wineries on December 1 from 12-2pm. This event is also free and open to the public with donations encouraged.
This is about 70% complete. However, when painting anything with eyes, I always paint the eyes to put soul into the painting before I complete. Then I really bond with the subject and which seems to make completing the painting much simpler!
This shows the progression of a painting. This is a 3ft X 5ft commissioned piece for a most wonderful nursery in Cresco, Iowa called Plantpeddler! This is in the very rough stages and the final will not be posted until its unveiling!
