Holiday Boutique This Weekend

This is an exciting week as I prepare for my first show and sale. Do Dads for You Carole and I will be exhibiting at the St. Mary’s Christmas in the Meadow Holiday Boutique. It’s the 10th anniversary of what has become one of Park City’s premier holiday arts and crafts shows. I’ll be there with a wide assortment of prints including virtually everything from the Tom Kelly Photo Web site plus more. It’s a perfect time to do holiday shopping for friends and family.

While I’ve sold prints here and there, I’ve never done a show. So it’s been a busy week of scrambling to order more prints and frames and get everything in order. I’m very happy with the diversity and qualify of prints I’ll be offering. If you’ve seen some of my photos on Facebook, Flickr or my Web site, you know what to expect. And for as little as $15 you can take a print home for the holidays.

Everything in my inventory is very reasonably priced, with your choice of 5×7 photographic prints in an 8×10 mat, or fully-framed prints. My recommendation is to come early on Saturday for the best selection. Doors open at 9:00 a.m. Saturday. There’s a nominal $1.00 admission fee which goes to the St. Mary’s Food Bank. You’re welcome to toss in a few more bucks. As you can imagine, the St. Mary’s Food Bank has been hit hard in the last year and the parish has actually dipped into savings to keep providing food to those in need.

Carole will be showing knitted and felted purses, coin purses, cupcakes, baby caps, mittens, cuffs, flowers, pumpkins and much more.

You’ll undoubtedly find many more wonderful crafts with over 100 exhibitors. Come join Carole and I this weekend. It’s easy to find, just drive into Park City on SR224 to White Pine Canyon (between The Canyons and the White Barn).

It’s the Cowboy Way

It’s the cowboy way! Riders in the Sky perform on Pioneer Day in Layton, UT (Tom Kelly)

We have always loved cowboy bands, and no one does it better than Riders in the Sky. What a wonderful evening it was, under the stars and stormy skies, in the Ed Kenley Ampitheater in Layton, Utah, celebrating Pioneer Days.


Shooting for the Sky

There’s something mysterious about watching pilots put their aircraft into flat spins just a thousand feet above the deck, or an FA-18 kicking in the afternburners and accelerating skyward covering three miles of vertical in just a matter of seconds. Or F-16’s going canopy-to-canopy – just feet apart as as they scream down the flightline at over 300 MPH. Air shows, like the one at Hill Air Force every other June, captivate us as we turn our eyes to the sky.
