Nat laughed out loud when he saw his Guardian portrait for the first time, then kept smiling and laughing, returning to study it and the other three portraits - Chief Buffalo Tiger, Gladesman Franklin Adams and Clyde Butcher.  He talked at length with Nicholas about the portrait and the Guardians project, and apparently approved of the concept of "endangered" in Connie's sheer banners.  His wife, Aletta, made photos on her iPhone and sent them to their children immediately. Special thanks to both Nat and Aletta for visiting.

 

GUARDIANS OF THE EVERGLADES® EXHIBIT HANGS IN COE VISITOR'S CENTER UNTIL MARCH 31ST.

Nicholas and Connie set up their faux studio at the Botanical Garden March 5 and hosted nearly 400 visitors viewing, asking questions, and learning about the pair's work -- Guardians of the Everglades® portraits, endangered species banners, the documentary film project and Nicholas' independent portraits and abstracts. It was an honor to be hosted by the Friends of Art, and a wonderful opportunity to meet new and old friends.

Thank you all!
