More Artists

Today I will finish up with the artists I met at last Saturday's open studio day.


Diane and her husband work together.  She does the painting, he works with metal. 


Joel is a retired dentist who has also made carved stone sculptures for more than 50 years. 


Libbie makes gorgeous beaded jewelry.



Holly has graphics design training.  Today she does pop art.


Christine is a writer, editor and painter of abstracts.  She also makes bulbs painted from the inside.


Laurel moved recently to Naples after several years in the Caribbean.


Michaela paints and teaches.  We saw her two years ago after a previous open studio day.


And Michaela's studio mate Leigh does rozome paintings.  
Rozome is a Japanese batik technique that accommodates shading.

This must have been a huge open studios event. You visited a lot of different artists.

That was a lot of artists in one place, Jack! And some really nice work!

So many portraits, so much art. Is there enough of a market for everyone? I see some good work when I go to STL's open studio weekend but most of the artists have day jobs.

My oh my. Do people have to submit an artist's portfolio to move to Naples? Are there any untalented people there?
