OK, admit it. This hasn’t really happened. But every player, coach and fan in just about any sport has on occasion felt this way.

I spent a good part of last weekend on the White Rock Artists’ Studio Tour visiting about half on Saturday and the rest on Sunday. I didn’t quite make it to all the studios. Thanks to my DVR I didn’t miss any sporting event!
This is a fun tour. There is a wide variety of everything: art ranges from conservative to bizarre, some you will love and some you, well, won’t; the studios vary from small rooms and spaces in garages to large free-standing buildings; and the artists are all very personable and approachable and willing to answer questions about their work and processes. If you haven’t taken this tour I highly encourage you to do so next time around (http://www.whiterockartists.com/).
This year I toted my camera with me and talked most of the artists into letting me take their photo. For those who have websites I included the address. I apologize to those I may have missed. You can also see samples at http://www.whiterockartists.com/. I sure hope I labeled each artist correctly. Note to artists: feel free to correct me under “comments.” Be on the lookout for typos. I’m working with four stitches in my finger (which is one reason I haven’t posted new art lately).

Here are the results for your favorite drawings posted on this site. I really appreciate everyone who participated.
Popsicles won clearly. After Popsicles the voting was spread out. As with your favorite cartoons I’ve combined the other favorites into ranges of votes received and listed them alphabetically in each tier. The second group was several votes above the third.

The sense of humor is a curious thing. What some people think is funny others just don’t get at all. The voting for your favorite cartoon on SirColby.com was quite diverse and more spread out than the choices for your favorite drawing or painting. The voting was close but one cartoon managed to get more votes than any others.
Getting Into Heaven
I’ve combined the other favorites into ranges of votes received and listed them alphabetically in each tier.
Arkansas Settlers, Back Burners, Church Picnic, Dragon Princess Tea Party, Engine Rattle, It Takes A Child, Nice Thought Japheth, Pioneer Pass, Shot My Paw, Texas Viking, Traveling

I’m trying to decide which pieces of art to make prints of to donate to a church fundraiser. You can help me. Over on the right, listed under Gallery, click on “paintings,” peruse the art and select your favorites, maybe 3 or 4 of them.
Then, do the same for your favorite “drawings.”
And again for your favorite “cartoons.”
You can let me know your choices by clicking on “comments” below or going to “contact” and sending an email.
Thanks for taking the time! I’ll post the results later. Oh, please hurry! The deadline for getting the prints done is coming up fast. Thanks again.
