Sidewalk Art Show 2008


That was the buzz this past weekend, where the cool water rags, umbrellas, and sunscreen were free flowing! Saturday was really miserable, but my fellow artists and I stuck it out in the heat to greet those art patrons that had braved the elements. Sunday was much more enjoyable, with a cool breeze and interested lookers and buyers. I felt the weekend was a success....I sold a couple of works, and enjoyed speaking with devoted repeat customers who had come to see me again. After visiting with my fellow landscape artists, I decided to schedule a plein air painting day once David and I are in the house in Floyd. Be on the lookout for a schedule on this later in the summer.

Thanks to my friends,partons, and amazing hubby and "art mule" David for supporting me during the show, and hope to see you again soon next month at Wine Down the Music Trail Festival in Floyd.

Happy Painting!

New Works at The Cheshire Gallery

I have three new landscapes at The Cheshire Gallery in Roanoke, VA that will NOT be in my Sidewalk Art Show display. I encourage you to check them out while in town for the art show the weekend of June 7-8th. The Gallery is located on Campbell Ave up the street from the city market. Or, if you need additional information about the pieces, do not hesitate to email me and I will be happy to help you.

See you at Sidewalk!

Memorial Day Outing

My husband David and I took off for the day on Memorial Day, checking out the Blue Ridge Parkway and a favorite outlook towards Rock Castle Gorge. A recent accident has hindered me with a freshly broken right ankle, limiting my travel and ability to get around a bit, but David helped me out this day. He got a crash course on how to set up my easel and paints, and he passed with flying colors!

Although not one of my best efforts on location, and a challenge with balancing on the stool, it felt wonderful and freeing being on location again. Enjoy the pics and insight into my process once again.

Until next time, happy painting!
