Looking Forward

Don Marco..... The Master Crayola Artist

Don Marco was born in Northern Minnesota in the late 1920s. His interest in art was evident even before starting school. As a young adult in the Army Air Corp, he began his life's career in Air Traffic Control, which continued until his retirement from Honolulu International Airport in 1973. Much of his spare time was spent as a professional artist. Before retirement, Don started developing a technique to create fine art, using Crayola Crayons. Shortly after retiring, he published his first print. Living in Southern California, his work was in demand, including commissions from Burt Reynolds and a one-man show at his Dinner Theater in Florida. Hard to imagine these are done with crayons!!!

Happy New Year Everyone! I know I am a little late, sorry I have been really busy and it looks like posting is going to be sparse until Jan. 15th. Some of you have sent me emails and I want you to know that I have not forgotten about you and I love each and everyone of you!

Update on my son Rusty...He just turned 25 on Christmas Day! His sentencing is scheduled on Jan. 10th and he has run out of continuances so there will be no more delays. After one year and four months the emotional roller coaster that my family and his victims have experienced will finally be over. Let the healing process begin! Sniff.

Take care everyone!
