Jean Bourbon Can’t get enough Knekkebrød 1998 organic ingredients 3 “x 3.5” At a young age, I was fascinated by photography and it’s ability to capture impressions of the past. Gathering inspiration from the diversity of the arts that surround our world, and motivated by my need to capture light in its purest beauty, my passion became my career. Combining my passion for art with the love for delicious foods, I have endeavored on a new journey together with my wife Hedvig. With Norwegian Baked we present to you the pleasure of artisanal crispbread, or as the Norwegian-folk call it: Knekkebrød, baked with a short yet clean and organic ingredient list. Bon Appetit! Jean Bourbon

Carolina Enriquez Swan Nom Nom Nom Nomi 2018 Gouache 9”x12” I have always worked with gouache because I love the transparency of the medium. It’s gives a painting more whimsy. This year I decided to continue painting portraits of some of my favorite characters and playing around with their name. My friend mentioned Klaus Nomi made a living as a pastry chef before he was a famous performer, I was hooked. This would be the first portrait I would do. I am a huge fan of sweets, German culture and music. I could imagine him decorating a Black Forest Cake while wearing full make up. This portrait came from that vision.

Annie James by Anne Mock 14 karat gold, diamonds, sapphires, aquamarine, and peridot After making a full recovery from thyroid cancer almost two years ago, I decided to launch Annie James, a line of fun, vibrant, and easy to wear jewelry designed and worn to promote thyroid cancer awareness. Women frequently compliment each other on their jewelry, so wearing an eye-catching jewel is a natural way to start a conversation about the importance of getting a neck check. Annie James has partnered with CancerCare, a leading national non-profit organization that provides financial assistance, counseling, support groups, and education services to cancer patients. Together, we have created a special Annie James fund that provides financial assistance to thyroid cancer patients. Twenty percent of the profits from each Annie James necklace sold will go directly to the fund, whose profits help qualified thyroid cancer patients manage the costs of their long-term medical treatment.

Rose Siersdale draws influence from the mark-making techniques of Abstract Expressionists, the subject of Contemporary painters, and the colors of high fashion. Her work is honest and direct as she continuously creates and destroys the image through layers of paint. This process opens up the possibility to develop a fresh and unanticipated new work of art.

This year’s theme is full circle and includes four long-term pieces highlighted by © Mr. Sad and Lonely and his pals. It was an epic effort and is one of my greatest works that I had very little to do with, other than the original drawing and yarn color selections. The white-framed paintings are works that I’ve had for years and only feel complete now. The drawings were quick, recent and are the best representation of my current work. Andar ìslenskrar náttúru was inspired by a recent trip to Iceland. Moonlight Mile was therapeutic drawing of a familiar motif that I used to recover from a wretched cold, in the depths of winter.
