Scottsdale Artists League Show & Sale


The second event that was causing huge crowds at the Desert Botanical Garden was the Scottsdale Artists League's show and sale.  Many of the artists were sitting around the garden and creating wonderful art works.


Other artists were manning the show where some of their artworks were for sale.  There is one in this photo that really appealed to me but it's a little hard to pick out in this photo.

So, I cropped it down so you could see it.  I love that wildflowers growing in the canyon.  It's a very Arizona looking painting.


































Another one of the artists displayed her painted and carved gourds on one of the walls displaying potted plants in my favorite little garden area.  She really had some gorgeously decorated objects here.

So did you purchase anything? That painting? I, too, like the gourds and they would have tempted me to open my wallet!

I like that highest gourd, the one sitting on the watering can.
