Update on Roanoke----A big weather event rolled through today about noon. You never know how bad things will get or how fast. I was talking with a nice young lady when it all started and she was upset 'cuz we were packing (the artists) so talking with her for just an extra 15 minutes, caused several paintings to get their back covers wet !! Now I'll spend 2 days drying work and applying new covers and hanging all the display equipment and the tent top and panels out to dry. You can't put that stuff away wet...MOLD!!
Anyway the organizers were disturbed 'cuz we were leaving but said they understood. Right.
There was very little attendance Sat. and certainly none to speak of today!! I'm really disappointed if you can't tell. We have so few art venues in this area, so when Mother Nature shows up just to spoil your day, I can't help but be disappointed.
OK - Rant is over. I'm to tired to fuss any more. Hope all of our friends had a wonderful weekend and can make it to our reception next Friday at the Salem Museum. I'll post details this week.

Hello Friends, A few photos from our short trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We started out at the Explore Park and you will have to look at their maps 'cuz I can't remember the MM. It's very close to Roanoke, Va.
First stop was at the Roanoke River Overlook. At the actual overlook, there was nothing to see except the tree foliage and the STEEP path down to the river. I can't stand looking down over the bridge to give you some perspective so thought maybe the photo at top of the girls on the bridge would work. It's a massive bridge and several thousand feet from the floor !!
Here is a shot of the local wildlife at the Great Valley Overlook. If you are quiet you can get much closer.
Hope you can read this sign.
And a little peek around the sign to see the Buena Vista.
We are all very busy at the moment, getting paintings finished up/dry, documented and ready to hang at a couple local shows. I will post more info soon about the Roanoke Sidewalk Art Show sponsored by the Taubman Museum. And the Sedalia Art Center in Bedford, Va. Both on the same weekend, which is a real crik in the neck, 'cuz I'd love to do both !
