Piano Project

Hi Friends,  I finally got my computer back last night !!  It had to be cleaned out and everything re-installed !  Thankfully I have a wonderful daughter that is really smart with computers and she fixes this sort of stuff for her Mommie.
Last meeting we DLPBR had was at 2nd Helpings to get started on the Piano Progect.
The top photo is a "before" shot so you can compare.
The second photo is Mary Anne starting with the sides.  Her famously sweet cow.
The third photo is a farther away shot to include all of the piano just before we stopped for the day.  You can't see it but behind MaryAnne & Linda we are all sitting at a long table, painting like crazy.  We sort of figured this is what a sweat shop must be like.  We under estimated how many singing critters we would need for this project.  So we all went home to paint a few more animals and we will meet there again on Wed. July 11th, so come by and see us in action and have a fab lunch from their cafe.  This week I had the Lobster Bisque and it was wonderful.  Everything is really great.

The reception for the "Piano Unveiling" is Sat. July 28th from 2 til 4.  They really know how to do a reception right.  You will have a great time.  Please stop by and say Hello.  DLPBR

Happy Trails.

PS - Go see my singing pigs at my blog

 Hi Friends,  A couple photos from the "Seasons in Salem" reception yesterday evening held at the beautiful Salem Museum.  The museum sits on the hill beside Longwood Park and across the street from the "East Hill Cemetary".  The show will be there until the end of June so you can still go by and see all our lovely work.
These are only a couple shots at the very beginning and then I became distracted - talking to so many people is difficult for me but I enjoyed it this time.  Lots of friends came and lots of new friends !  We were happy with the turn out and learned a few things to remember for our next event. 

Happy Trails !

 Hey Friends,  the DLPBR has a fabulous show hanging at the Salem Museum.  That's right Museum!!
The museum is on Main Street, right beside Longwood Park.  Remodeled and very impressive.
As you can see from the invitation above, the paintings are about the "Seasons in Salem."
 Here are a couple of photos from the day the paintings were hung.  The show hangs through the end of June

The reception is this Friday evening (June 8) from 6pm to 8pm.  It really sounds like a LOT of people will stop by.  We hope YOU can be there too.  It will be fun to share refreshments, talk with the artists about their work and check out the beautiful museum and the landscape.

In other news, we have a celebrity/winner in our group.  Midge Ovenshire won a "Best in Mixed Media" award at the 54th Taubman Musuem's Sidewalk Art Show!  Now I must edit the photos before posting here.  That is a BIG honor for Midge - Congrats from all of us!

Happy Trails....
