THE GOOD LIFE


Hello Friends,  Making this post just a bit early so you may have a chance to read it.  We know it's going to be pretty busy Thursday.!

We want everyone to know how very grateful we are to live in this country with all it's freedoms.  We can choose to be artists, or cartoonists, or chefs, or shoe salesmen, or trash men.

We, the Double Line Painters, are very grateful to be plein air artists (among other things) and to have met so many other wonderful artists and gallerists and collectors.

The photo above was taken at SINKLAND and in our minds says everything that we should love about our lives, with the exception of our families.

Good Friends, Great Scenery, Good Food, Good Health, Great Year coming up in a hurry !

Have a Happy, Peaceful Thanksgiving

Judy, Sue, Bonnie, Mary Anne, and Linda

NEW SHOW HANGING AT THE SALEM MUSEUM THROUGH THE END OF THE YEAR


Salem Museum Inside and Out!
Today we hung a holiday show at the Salem Museum (  link ­ 
http://salemmuseum.org
).  This 
space is one of our favorites as it is light and bright overlooking a historic cemetery and town 
park


Admission to the museum is free and makes a great place to take guests (friends and family) 
who come to visit.   We hope you have an opportunity to enjoy this museum and our show 
which will be up until the second week of January.
After hanging the art (and posing for a photo), we headed outside to paint.  It was a beautiful 
warm fall day.  And the colors of autumn were still stunning.  


Linda chose a spot up on the top of the hill and she is surrounded by beautiful deep golden 
leaves. 


Mary Anne chose is spot further down the path and is framed by the best red color of the 
season.


We hope this is not the end of the plein air season yet..........check back to see if we are back 
painting outside in the next few weeks.

And enjoy your fall days too.

IT IS UP . . . . NEW WORK HANGING AT THE JEFFERSON CENTER




Hello Friends,  Yesterday, Sunday, we hung our newest creations at the fabulous Jefferson Center in DT Roanoke.  I'm sure most of you have been there and know what a great place it is to hang a display.
Above Bonnie is adding a tag to one of her beautiful landscapes.


There is probably ever subject matter you can think of here.  Some sheep at Booker T Washington's historic sight in Moneta, Va. and some of the beautiful buildings at Whippledale Farm in Forest, Va.


And here we have cats !



And some peaceful landscapes in the 2nd floor main hall.
And more hanging on the 3rd Floor.

The Center has a full line up of entertainment for our fall and you can CLICK here to check out their schedule.  Hope you will allow time to look at the art work this season.

Enjoy the coming fall weather.
Thank you for stopping in.
