Real Cowboys in Florida

Yes, there are some real cowboys in Florida and I had a wonderful opportunity to meet some recently at the Polasek Museum. Not only do they own and run their own ranches, but they are also artists!

Pictured below are Eldon Lux (in the black hat, red shirt) and Buddy Mills (black hat, white shirt). I also caught a picture of Billy Davis. I didn't catch the name of the fourth gentleman in the picture with Billy.

You can find out more about Eldon at his website and see examples of his work.

New Venue for Classes Starting April 6, 2019

Sad news today. Michaels Corporate (not the store I was teaching at) has decided to not have any instructors that work directly for them as of April 6, 2019. That is the last day of employment for all Michaels instructors in North America.

Due to their recent business decision, I have moved all my classes to Hobby Lobby! Happily, my students are following.

The store manager at the Tuskawilla Hobby Lobby location in Winter Springs (still in the Orlando area) is very happy to add us to their schedule.

Classes for April 2019 are already in their calendar. Future classes will probably be scheduled for every 4th Saturday.

The classroom is located at the front of the store. I have pictures!

The classroom is the door on the left (not pictured). This is what it looks like after you enter the store and turn left. Walk past the shopping carts and look left. Just keep turning left.

Unlike Michaels, there's no window and the room can get a little chilly so bring a sweater or jacket - even in the summer! The sink is to the right behind the door (not pictured).
