Look Who We're Hanging With!

Rubber stamp artists aren't the only artists we know! For example, Brenda Belfield, who created dozens of the stained glass windows in the National Cathedral in Washington DC, has her shop directly in front of ours and is a regular visitor to the shop.

But my experience nearly 3 weeks ago is a highlight in the "hanging with artists" category! I got to attend Free-For-All-Friday at local radio station MIX 107.3 and meet the legendary artist Peter Max. (That's him in the front right, and that's Jack Diamond with his arm around me!) Known as the artist to the rock stars, he's created dozens of album covers, but his canvas knows no boundaries. He's also painted Boeing 737s, postage stamps for the US Government and so much more. He's even served as the official artist for 5 Super Bowls. (Did you know they had "official artists"?)

Check out lots more pictures on the radio station web site at:

Some days it's just worth getting up at 4 AM!
