Being set up with my new Dawson Knives Sword making series andAns mobile Dawson knives event gallery ;) Southwestern art, I was keeping busy with the live-painting demonstration during the event. While working towards finishing the third Dawson canvas I enjoyed the inspiring encounters and chats with event-guests visiting my ‘gallery tent’ (I was extremely pleased with the hospitality of my friends, the Dawson family! What do you think of my tent set up? Let me know!)Awesome Dawson helpers

The ‘tameshigiri’-(sword cutting test) demonstration was a special treat! (Watch the video here: tameshigiri-video)

The new sword/ knife themed oil paintings will be available on my website soon. And there’s plans for new Arizona art next year!live painting demo
