Booth Artists’ Guild Presents:  1-Day Horse Painting Workshop with Artist Bill Anton
The focus of Bill Anton’s work has always been on mood and passion.  He wants the viewer to feel the drama of atmosphere and the mystery of a western night.  He wants the volume of a cloud to be evident in his brushstrokes.  He loves the American West where walking thunderstorms and sunstruck cedars charge the landscape with beauty.  Mr. Anton’s work is in private and corporate collections across the country, including Sears, Dupont, State Farm Insurance, Bank of America, and Hewlett Packard.  Join him in this workshop where students will paint from a live horse.

Booth Artists’ Guild Presents:  1-Day Drawing Workshop with Artist Robert “Shoofly” Shufelt
Shoofly’s drawings are the result of 45 years in the saddle, working diligently as a cowboy enabling his soul to absorb “The Cowboy Way.”  With consummate technique, both dramatic and subtle, the artist’s subjects live in an intensified world of light, shadow, and texture far beyond realism, yet so clearly defined, they make color seem a distraction.  Mr. Shufelt’s work hangs in prestigious collections and museums, and is featured on covers and articles for major western art and ranching publications, as well as national network television documentaries.
