Just over a week ago we attended a Diane Whitehead event at Redstone Gallery, located at Kimball Junction in Park City, Utah.

The title of the event–and the title of this post–lured attendees to dress the part, Ms. Lemon included. Ms. Whitehead’s work is superb, and everything one could hope for in capturing the essence of the wildlife with which we are blessed here. To prove my point, here are a few examples, worth more than 10,000 words. The first includes the artist with some of her ursine friends. I’m a moose gal, myself, and was not disappointed:

We were headed to Phoenix the following day, and although our hostess, Ginny, would have loved a piece of Diane’s art, we opted instead to purchase a hand-painted stemware glass at the gallery from their “Bottoms Up” collection.
