Yesterday, my artist friend, Joan, and I travelled up the highway to Castle Rock Art Fest. It was a picturesque day. Castle Rock has a great art community filled with little shops and lovely places to eat. Joan herself, is a fabulous gourd artist (among other things) and she introduced me to David Sisk. David is a wonderfully successful gourd mask creator. If you get the opportunity to see these masks in person I encourage you to do so. They are fine spirited, command attention and are equisitely detailed. David was a pleasure to talk with. He has a great sense of humor and entertained us for quite a while. He lives in Tucson, Arizona. Stop by his studio if you live near there. It will be well worth the trip. Please visit his website Gourd Masque and let him know I sent you.
