Last Friday, I went to the first annual Clearwater Art Walk–well, only part of it, unfortunately.  I had another engagement that evening, so by the time I got there, I’m sad to say it was nearly over!  Also, I only had my little camera, which doesn’t take the best pictures in low light.  So, I apologize for the poor documentation of what was actually a really wonderful event.  Next year, if not exhibiting as an artist myself, I hope to at least get there on time and experience it in its entirety!

If you’re not familiar with Clearwater, it’s a little town just a bit southwest of Wichita.  And as it tuns out, it’s full of talent!  First up is one of my favorite artists–and incidentally, one of my sweetest friends–Laura Coon.   Laura works in acrylics, colored pencil, and clay; and is skilled in all of these!

I also met this young lady, whose style I really love.  You can view more of Courtney Long’s work or request custom work on her instagram page,  @art_of_a_horse.

Before the evening was over, I also got to view these works…though again, in my haste, I did not get a name to go with all of these.  If you know the artists, please tell me and I’ll give them due credit!!  (The last two pictures feature work by the school kids.)
