Hello Friends,  One last reminder to come out to the Sedalia Center Art Fair going on this Saturday, the 31st of May, 2014.
Check out their face book page, CLICK HERE, for all the vendors they have this year !
Looks like a lot will be going on, lots to see.  Be sure to stop by our demonstrations in the class room.  We will be demonstrating at 11:30 and 2:30.  All about making painted papers for collaging and scrap booking.
Hope to see you there, it will defiantly be worth the drive.

Beautiful Day for Plein Aire Painting

Hello Dear Friends,  the group of us finally got outside in the beautiful county of Botetourt today.  We were welcomed by a couple of geese and a duck.

We didn't have to go far to find beautiful views to put on canvas.  We really enjoyed roughing it today.

Above Linda has a good start going on here.  Hopefully she will post it on her blog when finished so we can all see how it developed.

Above Judy had a real beauty going on here.  Hope she finishes it and posts on her blog also.  Usually she kinda does something like starts and I never see them finished.

Above is Mary Anne's big canvas, she had it toned with some gorgeous oranges and reds.  She usually gets very close to finished.  This time she had a wee bit more to do.  Her work is very painterly, loose and everyone loves it..

Here is the wrap up.  We are all getting hungry and pack up to go to "Leonardos" for lunch.  Great food and pleasant, quiet place to gather after a HARD day at the office.

Roaring Run Craig's Creek "A Little Piece of Heaven"

Hello Friends,  We wanted to share a few photos of the beautiful place we choose to paint in last Thursday.

Hundreds of photos were taken but here is just a little proof of the beauty.

You need to go yourself.  It isn't very far.  Just off Rt. 220.

Above is Mary Anne, furiously working on her interpretation of beauty.

Above is Judy, with a closer view of beauty.

Above is Linda, taking the easy route to beauty.

Above (way above) is Bonnie make a long range view of beauty.  If I find out where some of these beautiful views will be hanging I'll let you know.  I'm thinking 2nd Helpings Gallery or the Salem Museum Exhibit in June.
