The artist is Tomi Glover, a local equestrian and master of all things that can be done with your hands. She gardens, builds, constructs, designs, and repurposes anything you can think of. She is truly a "Jill-of-all-trades." If you would like to see more of her work, she can be reached at 661-872-8396.
I had seen some of Tomi's work on Facebook as well as around the barn. I knew about the silent auction and decided to ask Tomi if she would be willing to do a small equestrian piece for the show. I quickly added that I would pay for her supplies as I know these things can get fairly costly. Not only did she refuse to allow me to purchase the supplies, she generously volunteered to use her own hand-stretched canvas and then even built the frame. It is so gratifying to have such gracious people in my life. I only hope that I can do something equally as kind for her.
