Miniatures Aug 2018.jpgLast night we painted the most delightful little miniature paintings.  Everyone got to select their own subject….and they all did GREAT!  It was so much fun we have decided to do it again so watch for the next date and invite a friend and join us.



We have been invited to teach two Paint Party sessions at the Belle Grove WineFest later this month, Saturday, August 25th.  If you love wine….and art….this is for YOU!  Take a look at these two sessions and plan to join us. The first session is at 11:30 and we’ll paint “Wine Glass with Cheese”.  Click here for info.   The second session is at 2:30 and we will paint the “Vineyard with Wine Glass”.  Click here to register and see more info.  You fee includes admission to the WineFest so you can come early before painting or stay after and enjoy.  Why not come join in the fun?!

Fox Meadow Aug Paint PartyWe had a terrific group of painters last night at the Fox Meadow Winery Paint Party. We painted their beautiful view.  It is so pretty there.  Check out more here.  Winery Fox Meadow 1

Yellow AbstractSometimes you just can’t find something that will look just right in a space….so you create it.  This is a large abstract (30″x40″) that I painted to fit a remodeled bathroom space.  I love it!

Broach CollectionI’ve been collecting brooches for quite a while.  I finally found a great way to display them and my friend Cindy who is visiting this week set them up for me last night.  I got the great little mannequin at Old Timer’s Antiques on Main Street yesterday in Front Royal.  Thank Barbara for your help.  I love it.  Now to find more brooches!

20180807_201237.jpgYesterday was the last day of Art Camp for this summer.  We ended with the girls painting the “Parisian Lady” from 1910 by Kees van Dongen.  They painted it on a large canvas and did a beautiful job.  Nice work this session young painters.  Keep painting!
