Sand Man Saturday Morning

This past Saturday, Pepper Place Market opened – and standing right in front of Lite Box Gallery was…

Lonnie Holley!  The Sand Man!  As in…the first-ever artist-in-residence at Intuit.
Oh, and there’s a nice interview with him here.
He’s got *several* pieces at the gallery right now – in fact, he’s part of a show with Debra Riffe and Art Bacon.  Here are just a couple of Lonnie’s:

The *very* best part was spending time with Lonnie and watching him make things out front.  He chatted with Shug and the baby for a while – and was giving out little presents, too.  Here’s a clip of him making some of his wire art:
