The Crown Family Picnic is an annual event and I’ve been drawing caricatures there for the past seven years.  There are always six caricaturists with each artist developing a “following,” meaning a group of fans who come back year after year to be drawn.  People collect the drawings and, I’m told, frame them at home in a rec room or family room.  I have my own following.  I greet everyone by name and remember how I’ve drawn them in the past so that I can come up with something new this year.  My photo record is spotty –must be more thorough next year—so that I don’t have everyone to show off here.  But one of my all-time favorites is a couple I see every year there and with whom I exchange news about how life has been treating us. Here is how I’ve drawn this darling couple for the past five years.  I present to you, two people who inspire me,  Carla and Peter!

I feel privileged to have been part of the entertainment at this annual even for about ten years.  At the Crown picnic on the family’s Waukonda farm, nothing comes in plastic.  The table cloths are cloth, the plates are earthenware, the tableware is stainless steel and the glasses are glass. Imagine hundreds of people enjoying wonderful food, plus the music of the Banjo Buddies.  Plus a hayride, a stilt-walker, a magician, three face-painters and six caricaturists. And so much more…good company and the chance to meet new people. Did I mention the bungee jump and getting  close to farm animals?  Too good to be true.  True!  It’s inspiring.  I love it.  People come back year after year to be drawn by their favorite artist.  I have my fans: Bridget, Fred, Carla, Peter, Cheryl, Sue, Anthony, Rachel… Some of these deserve their own posts here and I plan on doing just that in the next couple of weeks.  Check in later.
