He earned his card as a journeyman lithographer from the Stanford University Press, where he ended his ca- reer as supervisor of the art department. He was also a medical illus- trator there. With the move to Tay- lorsville, Clifton finally had time for creating his own style of fine art. Clifton's work is now found in several private collections all over the United States. Plumas is not the only place Clifton attends art workshops, though. He has attended workshops through- out the country and in Eng- land Clifton also shares his knowledge by" teaching art at E~dertvos~eL workshops; which is one of his rffost fa- vorite things to do. His favorite medium is oil, and his range of work in- cludes portraits, landscapes, still arrangements and ani- mals. "I'm still learning," Clifton said. "A lifetime of art has been good to me and enabled my wife, Betty, and me to raise four good boys." Baumann was also sur- prised with his award for ex- cellence in art. Baumann has also been with the group since its be- ginning. "I have always drawn," Baumann says of himself, though he did not make a ca- reer out of it. Baumann served in the Army Air Corps, and later the Air Force, from 1941 to 1962. After retiring from a mili- tary career, Baumann was a quality control inspector for aircraft engine repairs and plastics. He also managed several mobile home compa- I nies, which is the profession that brought him and his wife, Connie, to Greenville. In 1978, Baumann accepted a job inspecting mobile homes for the Plumas County, Department of Housing. Eleven years later, he final- ly retired for good, and then he immersed himself in his art. Baumann has rarely missed a weekly workshop. Despite several serious surgeries that should have kept him home, Baumann al- ways grabbed whatever me- dia he was exploring at the time and headed over to the Green Meadows Community Room to meet and work with other local artists. Baumann is a recipient of several Plumas-Sierra Coun- ty Fair awards for his art, and has b~L:~fll;y activ~] participant in preparations for the group's art show in Taylorsville. Baumann enters his work into the show each year, and is one of the popular "Artists in Action" for the event. Baumann explores art, ex- perimenting with techniques, materials and subjects. He and Connie are avid an- imal lovers, and his work of- ten reflects tt is love. Birds created with wire sculpture resulted from Bau- mann's most recent adven- ture in art, and the results have become quite popular, with a steady stream of com- missions. His work will be featured at the Taylorsville Art Show this spring. The Workshop for Plumas Artists meets each Thursday at 9:30 a.m., in the Green Meadows Community Room, off Hot Springs Road, in II$SINGIR CI RIIURN PROGRAM I[ YOU OUN'[ USE YOUR PAOUENG[R CAR CHAINS, RLTURN ]H[M [DR A HIU ALIER ]]!
