All Day at Centerfest in Bedford, Va.

 Hello Friends,  We are so glad some of you could make it by the festival today.  We enjoyed talking with all of you.
Some of us actually did a little painting today too.  That is Sue above and can you believe she is drawing a mini-crowd?.
And here is Mary Anne.  She is painting the street scene you see below minus the tall man.
And I found this tall man so intriguing, I took several photos of him.  I think He will be just the right touch for some collages.  Bonnie took my camera out to get some photos while I was painting but she didn't get any of Judy.  Sorry for that.  And I didn't get any good ones of Bonnie.  Sorry for that.
We invited lots of people to come to our shows in Lynchburg's Art Club Gallery and Goose Creek's Gallery .  Both in October this year.   We hope you can come by and peruse the beauties.

Come to Centerfest in Bedford, Sat. the 28th

Hello Dear Friends,  See !  I told ya I'd be back to remind you of two of our bigger events coming up in the next 2 weeks.

Now look closely at the right side of that postcard - the "Double or Nothing Show" in Bedford.
It's being held at Goose Creek Gallery on Court Street.  AND that is where we, the DLP gals, will be tomorrow, Sat.28th also.  We are participating in Bedford's Centerfest.  Held on the streets in Historic DT Bedford.  We will set up our easels around Goose Creek Gallery and paint the Beautiful Views.
The weather sounds promising, so we will get up before daylight, to be set up before they close the streets to traffic.  We want you to come by and talk with us.  Visit with us.  We love our friends and collectors.

Happy Trails

I Goofed - One More for the Fence

Hello Friends,  Guess what I DID make a mistake yesterday.  I left out Bonnie's painting being on the Fence !!  We were so far from each other and nobody told me...So I'm sorry Bonnie.
And nobody has mentioned any ribbons or awards so I guess I'm safe to post this.
Bonnie's painting is the still life with green pitcher.
Have a wonderful week everyone.

Fabulous Art Festival in Lynchburg

 Hello Friends,  We all had a very good day at the Lynchburg Art Festival.  Above is a lady perusing the work in Sue's space.  And she didn't have time to go chat much or take photos.
 Mary Anne had a piece pulled for the judges fence, above.  These pieces hang on this fence for a while, whilst someone (maybe the same judge) picks out the ribbon winners.
Above is the judge's selection from Judy's work. As far as I know, nary a ribbon went home with them.  But I'll find out if I'm wrong.  It's just a big deal to be picked to hang on this fence, ribbon or not.    I do believe it's safe to say  "We are Happy Happy Happy !
Happy Trails to Lynchburg

Lovely Time at Green Ridge Center

 Hey Friends and Future Classmates,  I know it's late but wanted to share with you some photos from the Ice Cream Social at Green Ridge Rec. Center in Botetourt County today.
 We all had a grand time and a huge bowl of ice cream with brownie and whipped cream !  Yum...
 We, Mary Anne and Sue, talked with a lot of folks about their interest in art and most feel a need to express themselves with a brush or maybe photos.   Mary Anne worked on a collaged ground with rice paper figures and I did 2 very small plein-aire landscapes, only I did them inside on the balcony over looking the beautiful view from the giant glass front of the center.  Loved that place !
This lady (whose name I failed to get-bad Sue) made this beautiful legacy quilt for her mother.  It has a lot of family photos printed on fabric.  A very ambitious project . 
And the staff at Green Ridge is a delight to work with.  I forgot my pliers and one fellow found some for me to open my oil paints and get to work!
Hope to see you all at the next Green Ridge event.

You are Invited !!

Hello Dear Friends,  I'm so sorry to be so late posting this flyer about the Ice Cream Social at the Greenfield Center in Botetourt on Route 220. 
I have tried several times to publish this post but this poster was sent to me in PDF form and I just figured out 2 minutes ago how to change it to jpeg in Photoshop.  I'll probably never be able to do that again...Ha Ha.
If you decide to join us for the Ice Cream Social I promise not to WHINE about computers and technology.
As you can see above, they wanted a head count by Friday but if you call 540-966-3984 I'll bet you can still have a cone.
We artists will be painting, demonstrating and joining the fun and games so please introduce your self.  Looking forward to seeing you there.
Happy Trails.
