"Life is Better with Dogs" pillow

“Life is Better with Dogs” pillow

“Life is Better with Dogs!” is the saying on this little embroidered pillow that I just finished.  And it is!  Everyone who knows me knows how I love my dogs….well, all dogs, but mine in particular.

And my little Mamie has been sick the past few days so I haven’t been painting but I have been doing some needlework while I stay near her.   So there is more embroidery to come.

Shen Confect Display OctSeveral of my adult art class student’s art are on display at Shenandoah Confections & Tea Shop at  124 E. Main Street in Front Royal.  Stop in for a cup of tea or a little piece of chocolate and take a look at their work.

20141022_092704“Painted Diamonds – 30 Parks in 30 Weeks”, created a painting of every major league ball park, all thirty of them, between April and October 2013. The project was documented and published in a catalog as well as on Kelly’s blog.  There was an exhibition of the entire series at the Blue Ridge Arts Council in Front Royal, VA, during World Series Week, October 23-31, 2013.   Eleven of the original paintings were pre-sold  during the Kickstarter project and several more have sold since the original show.

The paintings will remain on display at the Community Center until the end of October.  The remaining original paintings as well as prints of every park are available for purchase.
