|Here's a look at some of the fabulous pieces made by talented members|
of The Artisan Group for some of the biggest names in Country Music!
To the awesome musicians who stopped by The Artisan Group table backstage and posed with the members' displays. Thank You, it means so much to us artisans! (Kelly Clarkson! ;)
I hope that all of my 85 Original Feather studies have flown to new homes where they will be treasured and appreciated!
|One Original Watercolor Feather was included in each swag bag from The Artisan Group.|
I really wonder who received each feather, and like to think if some of the band members put them together,
they'll have a small collection of my art! :)
