As I’m writing this, the wind is whipping around the house and it’s -12 F outside, but feels like -33 with wind chill.  Bad as that is, it’s much “warmer” that this morning’s readings of -24/-50+!  My January visit to my parents in Arizona is just a delightful memory.   Certainly no sitting out in the sun to read today!

Every year when I visit, we stop at the two tent shows running from January to March.  These tents are large enough to hold 100+ artists, many of whom are pursuing their art right there.  It’s fun to observe and talk with them.  There are a number of artists I love each year and look forward to seeing what new creations they have.

Michael Jones Designs is one of those favorites.  He does wonderful metal work and I’d love to have a piece one day when we own our own home again.  The website I found seems to be down, but you can look for him on Facebook and see better photos of his wonderful work.  Today, though, I’ll share my less-than-stellar shots for your enjoyment.  There’s only so much you can do with a phone, lots of other art around, and the ever-present sun.  🙂  But I think the beauty of his doors/gates shines through anyway. He also does marvelous fireplace screens and lovely coffee tables, which you can see on Facebook.
