It Was Great !

 
Just a wee bit late friends.  I had shows to do and all that packing. Sorry.
Above is Bonnie with her latest ribbon.  Her husband will need to build an extra room soon for her ribbons.  This was at the "Bedford Barns Exhibit at the Bower Center in Bedford Friday night.
It was raining a LOT so the crowd was down.
Congratulations to Bonnie.

 
Which leads to the 42nd Lynchburg Art Festival being postponed from Sat. to Sunday.  The Rain.
It was still a great show even if the crowd was down.
That's me above working on the sunburn.

 
This is Linda above.  She sold a bunch of stuff and you can tell she's happy.

 
Above is Mary Anne and she is extra happy.  She really sold.

 
Above is Bonnie.  Besides winning ribbons at the Bedford exhibit, she sold quite a few things.
So everyone is happy and in case you are wondering,  Judy is missing but very Happy 'cuz she is at the Grand Canyon enjoying the views.  Lucky Lady.
 
So now we are all packing again to go on a short retreat in the wilderness of the Appalachian Mountains close to West Virginia.  We get to paint and paint for 3 days.!
Are we the happiest plein aire painters ever?
YES.

Painting the Wharton Garden in Bedford, Va.


 
Hello Friends,  We made a short trip to Bedford, Va. this morning.

 
We were delivering our renditions of Bedford Barns.  The Bedford Historical Society and the Bower Center are sponsoring this exhibit of the local barns before they are all gone.

 
Being the crafty, creative, industrious, little artists  we are, we struck out early enough to paint in the beautiful garden next to the Bower Center.
Above is Linda and she was a happy gal 'cuz she is getting faster with a brush.
 
 
Above is Mary Anne and she's always a happy gal 'cuz she gets to paint in heavenly places.

 
Above is Bonnie and she's a happy gal 'cuz she gets to sit in the shade today.

 
And above is Sue and she's a happy gal 'cuz her outfit is so pretty today.
 
Unfortunately I can't show you how happy Judy is today 'cuz she had a workshop to attend.
 
I will post about the opening of the Barn Exhibit at the Bower Center soon.
 
Thanks for stopping by and Hope you have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend.

Plein Air at Carvins Cove

 
Hello Friends,  The DLP's had a great day out at Carvins Cove last Thursday.  I was out of town so did not get to join the fun this time.  Mary Anne (above) and Judy set up on the dock to paint.

 
While Bonnie (above) set up in the shade of the woods next to the dock.  There was much activity with people fishing from land and boats.  A steady parade of paddle boats, canoes and kayaks floated by us.  It was a warm sunny morning and it was nice to be back at the cove.
Hope to see you at the "Lynchburg Art Festival", Sat. Sept. 13th at the EC Glass High in Lynchburg and "Centerfest" in downtown Bedford, Sat. Sept. 27th.
