I wanted to note a particular artist at the Moscow Renaissance Faire. His name is Andy Sewell and I first saw his artwork (specializing in paintings of the Palouse region) shortly after we moved to Idaho nearly eight years ago.
This fellow and his wife work hard to market his artwork. We see his booth set up at many regional events, and he's one of those noteworthy artists who isn't a parasite on society by taking government money to pursue his muse.
I know this for a fact because I spoke to him in a brief phone interview last year as the basis for a WorldNetDaily column on the subject.
Here's the small print I bought last year.
He has so many beautiful landscapes that it's hard to choose only one. This is understandably one of his best-known paintings.
It staggers the mind how much talent people can possess.
You might visit his website and see what other glories are on canvas.
