Greetings: Apologies for my lack of communication this past year. The year was eventful on many levels. Missed a couple of annual events I usually attend. I am back in good health and working again. This note is to let you know that the Moon Dog will be showing at the annual Art in the Park in Decatur starting Saturday, Sept 16 and Sunday, Sep 17. We have some new works ready for their debut. Make plans to visit this event and stop by the Moon Dog tent and say hi. See you there. -Don

Mark Your Calendar: Just a quick note to let you know that the Moon Dog will be exhibiting at the Sugar Creek Art Festival in Normal, IL. On Saturday and Sunday, July 9 – 10, we will be open for business on Beaufort St. in Normal. 10 – 5 on Saturday and 11 – 4 on Sunday. Over 130 professional artists will be exhibiting. Very high quality art will be ranged over the entire down town of Normal. Plan to make the trip and take a look at the art. And while you’re there, stop by the Moon Dog tent and say hi. Check out the new works. I am working with a new concept: Spaceman vs. Godzilla…The overlords knew that the Spaceman destroyed everything he was put in charge of, so they put him in charge of Godzilla. Stop by and take a look.
