Visiting the Present Reality of a Past Event

Longevity as an artist usually means you've done many different kinds of art-related things in the past and changed genres a few times. Sometimes one of those things pays a return visit! In 2001 I participated in the Trail of Painted Ponies in Santa Fe and created Rosie the Apparoosa for the project, which led to a commission, and eventually a "collectible" replica. Last week I drove to Phoenix to sign a second collectible, "Night Pony" for a lovely signage sum. Sometimes one gets lucky! Signing MHornbuckle 325 times was a breeze(ponies, certificates and books), and Rod Barker, and Karlynn Keyes (Pres. & V-Pres) and their whole staff were just great. What a treat to have such a good time in addition to getting paid!! If any of you out there have a horse-crazy friend, aunt, cousin or someone in your family who "collects" things, check out out their great website. My second collectible is pictured in the Valentine's cycle on the home page (nice!), but more than that, this very creative small business deserves support! You could pass along the link too!
