humistonLinda Humiston, Custom Painted Leather Boots
“Somewhere along the path of my creative discovery, I was asked to decorate for a big western shindig,” says Linda. “This is how I ‘stumbled’ into painting boots. My original decorated boots were created for use as table top centerpieces. The process I developed that renders the best results requires boots to be thoroughly cleaned and stripped of oils before the painting begins!!! The creative process starts and sometimes the boots seem to paint themselves!  Colorful designs and themes emerge, some fun, some rustic, some bright. Each boot takes on its own character along with a new, extended life, either as a decorative piece for your home or a gift for another. Because I use paint that is specifically designated for leather, new boots can be decorated to match a special outfit.”

Gabriel Salcido, Metal 
“In the stillness . . . that is where inspiration lives. Working with metal is second nature for me,” says Gabriel. “Simple lines and basic shapes along with a collage of cultural influences define the philosophy of my work. The Southwest, simultaneously delicate and bold in light and color, is the stuff I see daily. The more you create the wider your imagination expands. Light and the illusion of light, especially in the fall, directly compels my artistic mind. Observing the world in motion creates the sparks my imagination needs to flow. It is hard to say if you choose metal or if the metal chooses you . . . it is a lifelong relationship.”

                              

Lynn Gustafson, Glass
Lynn Gustafson started her glass fusing adventure ten years ago.  She loves making functional pieces of art, and believes that by incorporating art into our everyday lives we make a our world a bit brighter.  “Eating breakfast from an art glass bowl is a great way to start the day,” says Lynn. The colors of Fall speak to Lynn’s soul.  “I have never met a red, orange, or gold that I didn’t like,” states Lynn.

Margaret Sullivan, Gourds
“I admit it — I am a ‘closet’ artist who ‘came out’ in the early 2000s after retiring from a career in the business world,” says Margaret. “On a lovely November afternoon while visiting a farm in south Phoenix, I discovered the art form of gourds. I am in love with the myriad possibilities of turning a dull, drab gourd into a fabulous work of art,” states Margaret. The November “Fall for the Arts” ArtWalk is synonymous with Margaret’’s love of creating.
