Well, I regret to say that my lovely wife is still in the recovery phase and I promise she’ll be back for next week’s blog. Three weeks of being sick has worn her out so there will be A LOT of grand adventures in the upcoming blogs as she recharges her batteries! In the meantime, here’s more sentimental reflections of our past 28+ years together as artists and how we’ve changed style and direction in our artwork.
What’s around the bend? Well, we always do our best to try to plan our future (Literally, we annually write down our plans and goals), but knowing life always throws us surprises we eagerly anticipate our upcoming adventures whenever … and wherever, they may be! Hope you can join us in the fun!
You can peruse the archives of this weekly blog to learn more of our career history and lives together, or see the business highlights on our “About Us” page on the website.
It’s not hyperbole … we really have participated in somewhere close to 1,000 shows and exhibitions. The number is likely higher if we count tour venues and the variety of displays of our work in galleries and museums. I’ve been doing art shows for over 30 years and Rachelle’s at 29. One drawback of travel and interaction with so many thousands of people annually is we can get sick. It’s rare … even a simple cold might catch one or both of us just once a year. This year though, Rachelle managed to fall ill after two back-to-back shows. Fortunately, not until we were back home but sadly, at a time when we finally were free to have some down time. She’s spent the best part of the past two weeks dealing with cough and congestion and is now under care for a mild case of bronchitis. I’m substituting for her this week on the blog so bear with my lack of elegant prose and instead enjoy this selection of memories from our career.

Our Miniature Paintings at John D. MacArthur Beach State Park!
By Rachelle Siegrist
John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, the only State Park in Palm Beach County, is not only a gorgeous park, but indeed an environmental treasure for the State of Florida! Nestled amongst a natural heritage of subtropical coastal habitat that once covered southeast Florida, it is indeed a joy to visit this park, and makes one feel in many ways that you have returned to a time before so much of Florida’s natural beauty has been destroyed.
Wes and I are delighted to be a part of the Invitational 2018 ~ Artists of the Natural World Art Show and Sale, currently taking place in the visitor center. Wes and I have enjoyed visiting this beautiful park many times over the years and are thrilled to be part of this show, with proceeds benefitting the park and helping to preserve it for future generations to enjoy!
I’m excited to say that several of our miniature paintings have already sold, but there’s still a chance if you too would like to add one of our miniature gems to your own collection, whilst also helping to preserve this beautiful park! Here are our paintings, which as far as I know, are still currently available . . . .
