In order to keep doing this, painting daily, I have to spend some time buying supplies as well as keeping abreast of what other artists are doing.  One way I do this is to go annually to Raleigh, NC to Art in the Carolina, a huge art supply trade show and workshop event sponsored by Jerry’s Artarama, my favorite artist supply store and catalog.  I love going.  It’s great fun to watch the demonstrations, check out the new products, and pick up supplies at great prices.

A big plus is that my artist friends from Kentucky come and I get to spend time with them including my former teacher and artist mentor, Barbara Gardner.  It is always good to catch up with friends.  I’ll let you know what all I learn as soon as I return.  🙂

As I posted a few weeks ago, click here to see more, I have been working on Hunter Orange sweaters for my boys to wear when we go to the cabin during hunting season.  They love to run and play and I want to be sure they are well seen. 

Here they are modeling their new looks. 

And here they are arguing over who wears it the best!

And Lincoln with an expression on his face like “Why me?”

OMG!  What a night!  The artists at Delilah’s greeted children with Halloween candy.  We thought we had plenty this year but once again we ran out after an hour.  Here is Fortune Teller Jackie giving candy to the wonderfully dressed up children.

We were so overwhelmed by the crowd that we had to take turns.  Here’s Fortune Teller Kelly helping out.  

The lines wound down the street.

And when we ran out of candy the Fortune Tellers went to work telling the “future” to  all those brave enough to dare.

Many thanks to Jackie Bourque who did a great job with the kids telling wonderfully uplifting fortunes to the little ones.

And the kids went all out with their costumes.  There were some of the cutest kids there.  Thanks to everyone who came out and made the Hometown Halloween a huge success.  And we hope to see all of you back at Delilah’s for your holiday shopping!  🙂
