 Hello Friends,  I thought you might be interested to know the "DLPBR" have been invited to show our art work at SILVER LININGS in downtown Roanoke, Va.  Silver Linings is housed in the Old, Historic Jefferson Electric Co. building on Franklin Rd. close to Jefferson Street.
 Here are a few shots of the interior.  They have all you can imagine and a lot of antiques and decorative elements.
 Our show will go up on November 2nd, 2012 in time for the ArtWalk in DT Roanoke.
We sincerely hope you will be able to come out and peruse this beautiful shop and meet some of the artists and designers.  'Til then have a great week.

Some Late News

 Hey Friends,  A little late with this post but......Above is from last Friday night with the opening of our "Plein Air Inspirations" show at Gallery 108 in DT Roanoke, Va.  We had lots of folks come by and several sales and good company.  Great time !
 Yesterday, Thursday,  we the "DLP" were photographing the famous historic DT Salem, Va. when we came across a storefront on Main St. with a poster of the SPCA's 2013 calendar which has Judy's award winning painting on the cover !!  Pretty cool !
 AND now a little reminder to make time to travel the gorgeous Blue Ridge Parkway to the Meadows of Dan (close to Floyd) to the last outdoor festival for me, Sue Furrow and Bonnie Mason.  It happens Saturday and Sunday, the 13 & 14.   I joined up late so I'm (Sue) not on the artist list.

How to Paint Small Canvases

 Hey Friends,  After working on her painting this morning at Greenfield Park in Botetourt County, Mary Anne opened a package of small canvases.  She attached them to her board with painters tape and began painting the scene.  She painted the grouping as "one" unified work but continued to look and design each individual canvas to be its own complete painting.
You can see her progress from start to finish.
