Hello Friends, We made it out today ! The weather was positively perfect. Hope you got out for a while. Above, is Linda, Mary Anne and Sue. Judy was with the camera. Bonnie was busy with family, and we missed her.
This historic old, well kept house once belonged to the Lynch's. Can you imagine being a kid and having all this room and beauty to play in?
As usual, all groups seem to have one bad apple. So we had to put Judy in the old-fashioned time out!
After she agreed to behave, we let her out and guess what happened. She started chasing (and we were all running too) the Snack truck, as if it were the ice cream man!!
Never a boring moment when out with the Double Line Gals.......
Hello Dear Friends, Hope you guys are enjoying this fantastic early gift from Mother Nature !!
She probably said to herself, maybe I should try to save Sue's sanity by making it Summer like today!
Bless you Mother Nature.
Mary Anne and Judy enjoyed traveling to Bedford this morning to swap out the art works. I'm sure the guys, Patrick and Mitchell, enjoyed sprucing up their gallery patio too. Looks great !
Here is a peek at the corner arrangement.
And here is a peek at the full wall. These photos of course don't do the art justice. So plan on coming by this Friday evening from 5 - 8pm for the monthly artwalk. You will be able to see our blood and sweat on each piece. HaHa.
And a good friend,Shelley Koopman, has an opening Friday night also. Her series of Museum visitors perusing the art works will be up so you get to see two new exhibits. Click on her name and you can see her blog about this series.
Hello Friends, Two weeks ago we posted here about a short trip over Rt. 11 starting in Draper, Va. So now we have some images of some of the paintings created from that trip. These will be going to the Arts Depot in Abingdon.
Above is a beautiful landscape by Linda Schaar.
This is a busy shopping scene by Mary Anne Meador.
And these were all scenes taken from Route 11 here in Virginia.
Above is by Judith Lochbrunner. There are several colleges along Rt. 11 and this scene depicts a college student taking a fishing break.
The above is by Bonnie Mason and I'm sure you recognize this scene of DT Roanoke.
The above is by Sue Furrow. A barn and cows near Elliston. Of course there are plenty of barns and cows on Rt. 11 but getting photos to work from is not always so easy. She feels fortunate that she got so many photos of the sweet cows.
Now we want to pat ourselves on the back or maybe honk our own horns with this.
Our exhibit is following the Women Painters of the Southeast exhibit in April. This a prestigious group of artists from all over the SE so we are in excellent company.
Please find more info at their website www.abingdonartsdepot.org.
We hope you have our reception on May 5th penciled on your calendar.
