For years, the Artist Guide was sold in stores for $20, with about 3,000 folks picking up a copy. This year, we’re changing how we do business and doing everything it can to monumentally expand the fan base for local artists.
We’ve joined forces Good Times for the 2015 Tour, and with their help we will distribute 40,000 Guides this year. In late September, 35,000 full-color, glossy, magazine-style Guides will be inserted into the Good Times and will be distributed in Monterey and Santa Clara counties – FREE to anyone who picks up a copy. Cue the towering flames! Hear the roar of the crowd.
For fans who miss the September issue of the Good Times, and folks used to the classic system, we’ll have 5,000 Guides available, for just 5 bucks, in outlets throughout September and October. Plus, our Open Studios app has more cowbells, whistles, and functionality than ever.
So Open Studios is coming up in like under 59 days…………..
If you are in Santa Cruz and want to check out the shows! You can get the Artists Guide a bunch of different ways now!
Remember my Artist number is #52 in the guide book!!!!

So after many paintings of lovely doggies, I have completed one of a nudie cat! Boris the Sphynx!!!
I drew it up last Thursday eve and got busy on it Friday, Saturday and then finished it up this morning!! I am glad I used more colors than just one for the background. I think it helped with having colors that are in his face also be in the background. I am super happy how this one came out!!!! 🙂
Back on to the birds of prey paintings……………………….
