PLEIN AIR PAINTING AT VWCC ARBORETUM


Hello Friends,  Today was a chilly, sunless day here in SW Virginia but much more pleasant than what some states are dealing with.   And we still had a good time and painted the beauty found at our local community college.


VWCC has benches everywhere for enjoying the surroundings or for painters.


Some still want a broader view so they stand.


And some blend into the background much like the deer.


There was plenty of color even this early.  Roses, rhodies, iris, and blooming trees.
The volunteers were working fast and furious on the front, roadside beds before the rains move in again.  I hope everyone appreciates their labor.  They make this place special.

Thanks for staying long enough to see what's happening.

LEXINGTON ART ON THE GREEN


Hello Friends,  A quick note for you today.  Wanted to Toot Our Horn a bit.
The photo above was cute so I included it.  Something was funny.


This shot is Judy Lochbrunner accepting her award for BEST in the ACRYLIC Division.
Just wanted everyone to know her hard work has earned her some recognition.
GO JUDY!!

This small art festival is set in a very nice little park in DT Lexington and was a very pleasant
way to pass a Saturday on the hottest day so far this year.  Thanks sent to their committee.

Happy Trails

GOOSE CREEK STUDIO-GALLERY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE EVENT


Hello Friends,  We, the DLP's, went to Bedford, Va. yesterday afternoon to support Goose Creek's Studio/Gallery with their Chamber of Commerce event.


We first went to the Wharton Garden (located 'tween the library and Bower Center) to start a plein air painting or two, which we intended to finish while at the Goose Creek Event.


Here you can see the people are beginning to arrive and Linda and Mary Anne are setting up their plein air gear again.  Patrick back there in the royal blue.


Here is a demo going on about making silk scarves and my gear with the 2nd painting from Wharton Garden.  A wood worker is there in the green shirt.


An interior shot, a few minutes later, you couldn't walk, it was so crowded.
Taken from the rear of gallery.


A beautiful gallery, loaded with beauty for your home and so close to Roanoke.
Taken from the front of the gallery.


Hopefully the artist, Pat Daughtery, will not mind showing her work.

Don't miss our next post about the "BIG X 5" Art Show going up first of May here at Goose Creek Studio's.
Some of the DLP's will be at the Lexington ART ON THE GREEN in the morning.
Hope to see you there.
