Hello Friends,  Our chair for the Bedford Artisan Trail Auction is all finished.

Full rear view.

 
Had to let you see our logo.  And we all signed it on the bottom.

 
Here is the whole Good-Lookin' Gang that made the chair Pretty.
 
We always have a good time at 2nd Helpings and the manager even put us on their Face Book Page.

OOAK (One of a Kind) COLOR WHEEL CHAIR IN PROGRESS

 
Hello Friends,  OK, Here's the BIG reveal !  We are painting one of the chairs to be auctioned in a silent auction the first weekend of May 2015.

 
We are using the Color Wheel to make our chair bright and cheerful.  We are almost finished with the painting part.  Next comes the varnish and then the cushion.  This auction will benefit the children's programs on the Bedford Artisan Trail.

 
And here is our biggest help today "MAX".  He cheered us on and entertained us all morning.  He was a real pro.  Only needed one nap.!
 
More photos when we finish, soon.
 
Happy Trails
Have a great spring weekend.

AN ARTSY-FARSTY GUITAR AND VIOLIN

 
Hello Friends,  I was at 2nd Helpings Gallery on Williamson Rd. today.  So I took a couple photos of our Musical Art to show you.
I know you have seen these before but a reminder doesn't hurt, does it?

 
Both instruments were painted, embellished by us, the Double Line Painters.  Part of the proceeds will help the Mission fund all their services.  The shelters, the meals and clothing are the first items that come to mind.
Go to the Gallery and look at these whimsical treasures and all of the other beautiful works of art.
On March 26th, we DLP's will be at the gallery working on our craft.  So make plans to stop by and say HELLO.  We love company !
 
Thanks for stopping in.

NEW WORKS OF ART TO BE DELIVERED TO GOOSE CREEK IN BEDFORD NEXT WEEK



 
Hello Friends,  Still snowing here in the SW mountains of Virginia.  So the DLP's did not have a chance to start on the chair I mentioned in the last post.
 
Judy and Mary Anne will deliver and install new works at Goose Creek Gallery in DT Bedford next week, so I thought a little peek into what's going up would be a fun thing for you to look at.
 
Above is a new work by Mary Anne Meador, "a Touch of the Orient."

 
Above is by Bonnie Mason, "In Autumn."

 
Above is by Judith Lochbrunner, "Bare Branches."

 
Above is by Sue Furrow, "Pond House-Blooming Roses."

 
Above is by Linda Schaar, "Time of Day"
 
We hope you will all be able to get out of this winter rut next week and visit Goose Creek Gallery on their art walk, the 2nd Friday of March.
All the other art venues will be joining in the art walk as well, in DT Bedford.
 
Thanks for stopping by.

NOW THE LAST DLP BUT NOT THE LEAST !

 
Hello Friends,  Here is Linda's snow job (LOL) .  She put the base coat of Kilz on this chair, that we all are going to paint for a Charity auction that will benefit the youth art programming on the Bedford Artisan Trail.
Chairs will be sold in a silent auction to be held the first weekend of May.
Hopefully I will not forget to post more information as it becomes available.
 
We have a beautiful plan for this chair, but I believe it's a secret for now, or at least until we get started on it.
 
Thanks Linda for getting the chair started.
 
Happy Trails
Be careful when slip sliding all over the next 4" of white stuff  headed our way tonight.
