Our May speaker, Richard Hight, was enjoyed by all! We are looking forward to hearing Mikel Donahue present “Expression of Emotion” at or June meeting. Mikel’s award winning colored pencil drawings and paintings portray daily rituals on the ranch using knowledge aided by time he spent on ranches and working with quarter horses.  Among his awards are the 2013 prestigious Steven Jones Purchase Award, 1st place drawing and new entrants awards for “Shipping Day” at the Bosque Art Classic. He has been featured in several magazines.
