|Reclining Snowlady Sculpture by Paul Gordon|
After all the hustle and bustle of managing Cynthia Crane's Pottery and Paintings biz last fall, I've given myself a nice long vacation to catch up on some projects in my home. But more on that later - this post is all about Paul Gordon and his amazing folk art, his fantastic studio, his fabulous home AND his yearly art show "Friends In Christmas".
|Contemporary Folk Artist Paul Gordon|
I have indeed met some very talented artists here in my new area, but none quite so uniquely talented as Contemporary Folk Artist Paul Gordon. Imagine my surprise when quite by accident in early 2014 I stumbled upon a blog article on Paul and the wonderful art show he puts on each November in his local studio and antiques shop.

And to be in the company of Paul's hand-picked group of extremely friendly and talented artists was truly wonderful!

Pauls work has also been featured in magazines, as shown in this recent issues of Treasures.
|Yes, that's Paul, truly "One of a Kind".|
|How imaginative! You just know he's having so much fun making these!|
And if his studio isn't enough to make an artist and vintage-lover green with envy, his home - filled with the most amazing collections - is certainly a joy to behold!
