Tonight was the opening banquet and reception for the 28th annual Robert and Peggy Sears Invitational Art Show on the campus of Dixie State University. The show features works by about 135 artists in all mediums and genres. My good friend Royden Card was the featured artist and speaker. His words were inspiring and uplifting to all of us. Following the banquet George Handrahan was named as the featured artist for next year and won the Best of Show purchase award. Painting purchases were made by draw as the Eccles Gallery on campus was flooded with buyers. I was pleased to have both of my paintings snapped up in the first few minutes by Janet Sparks. she purchased "On the Farm"and "Yorkshire Dales Morn." The show remains on exhibit through March 29, 2015.

We're enjoying a quiet weekend tending Clear Creek Family Ranch for my son Jon while he and his family travel to a mission homecoming. The weather is amazing, the scenery is tops, and the animals are really hungry! Gathered a couple dozen eggs and introduced ourselves to the new pig Felipe (snort). Hope you are having a great Saturday too.
|Felipe and I hit it off right away. He was hungry, and I had food. He's a new addition to Clear Creek Family Ranch.|
|Had to fill up the big water trough. About 100 deer get their water here during the night too.|
|Domestic turkeys watching the chickens have a buffet of scraps. Literally thousands of wild turkeys roam the Clear Creek Family Ranch as well.|
|Farmer Roland out standing in his field. Just before repairing a busted fence with duct tape at Clear Creek Family Ranch. Too much fun.|
|Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry. We had tons of feathered friends waiting for the feed buckets this morning. It's nice to feel needed.|
