CINDY LEWIS and MARK
2005 was the
35th Anniversary of the WATERFOWL FESTIVAL, and we were extremely
honored to be invited as the "MASTERCARVERS" on this
were spinning with ideas for the "Master carving",
and the rest of our 2005 display -- truly spinning. Combining
our summer Yukon/Alaska adventures with our passion for Birds
and Florals had us anxious to create new pieces that were educational
lovely on the eastern shore of Maryland and the Historic town
of Easton is the perfect setting for a wildlife art show AND
We were thrilled
with the reception the Master Carving ("Birds of Endearment")
had at the festival. We had been hoping that they would use it
as an identification book in 3-D, and we hoped that they would
pursue sections of the whole for their homes.
It was a terrific
weekend for us -- friends and clients from as far away as Florida
and Arizona honored us by joining the festivities.
"Birds of Endearment"
a treat it was to exhibit our "extinct species series"
together for the first time. We thank the Bodifords and the Birds
for their generosity in sharing with everyone.

Conservation Award Dinner
We were commissioned
to do a special project for the
Foundation International's 50th Anniversary Convention in Reno, Nevada - January 23, 2007. They wanted an unusual
piece for their large art and hunt auction at their black tie
dinner. We decided to do a piece titled "Mixed Bag", a collection of 5 North American quail
all displayed on the same piece. The upper three birds are erupting
into flight (Bobwhite, Gambel Quail and Valley Quail), and the
two below are Scaled and Mountain Quail.
We are honored
to receive this important commission and did attend the 50th
anniversary dinner in Reno. Below is a photo of us standing in
front of "Mixed Bag" with the new owners - Vice President
and Mrs. Dan Quayle.
you for your support over the years. We have really enjoyed the
visits with clients/friends at the exhibits we do and when visiting
while traveling this beautiful country we have the priviledge
of calling home.
