Diane Eason Caricature by Madeline Ledzinski

This is another of our ArtChix, Diane Eason, done in caricature by the famous Madeline Ledzinski. She has vowed to do all of the ArtChix portraits in caricature style, so those of you who have not been targeted, get ready....your turn is next!

Two more ArtChix

The photos of these two ArtChix were missed in the first set of photos submitted for our weekend ArtChix sale, all photos were taken by Jim Greenwald. Thanks Jim for taking these lovely photos!

Caricatures by Madeline

At the ArtChix show/sale this past weekend one of the ArtChix, Madeline Ledzinski, dropped by to practice her caricature skills by drawing caricatures of four of us. Those who know us will recognize Sharon King, Barbara Lang, Ruth Malins and me, Susan Roper from these fun drawings. The most difficult part of sitting for these portraits was to stop talking long enough for Madeline to get the facial features correctly.

Aren't these fun?!

ArtChix Show - March 21 and 22

The ArtChix are holding an art show/sale this weekend, with seven artists participating. I have received photos of four of these artists from the Sun City Grand Art Club's Historian, Jim Greenwald. The artists shown here are: Diane Eason, Susan Roper, Norma Miller and Ruth Malins. When I receive the photos of the others I will add them here. It was a beautiful day to be strolling through an art show!

I, as the ArtChix Blog Mistress, have set up another important art blog for the Vanguard Artists.
We are a group of artists in the West Valley and disprove the fact that good art begins and ends at Central Avenue and is to be found only in the East Valley (Scottsdale) area. There are many lifelong artists in this group and their rich and varied art experience shows in their magnificent work.

ArtChix members who belong to Vanguard Artists are: Ann Stubenrauch, Arlen Madole, Barbara Lang, Diane Eason, Norma Miller, Madeline Ledzinski, Ruth Malins, Carol Kennedy and Sharon King. Members of the Sun City Grand Art Club who also belong to the Vanguard group are: Kandyce Olson, Judy Visker, Ron Anderson, Woodie Mackey, Steve Plichta, Connie Bollard and Kay Verstraete.

There are slideshows of some of the individual artists' work, and this sidebar feature is being developed more as we speak. Do stop by and have a look at:, we'd love to hear from you!
