 At the Festival of Leaves last Saturday I worked on a couple of the Farm Animal series paintings. 

The first was Mean Rooster from Suzanne’s farm.  You can read more about him here

This was the beginning of the painting.



And I made progress on it throughout the day. 






And here’s Mean Rooster nearly finished.  This is an oil painting on 8″x6″ canvas panel.  He is part of the Farm Animal Series that you can see at Delilah’s on Main Street in Front Royal.

We had a great opening reception for the art campers yesterday afternoon at the Community Center.  Many of the students were there and lots of art admirers to encourage their work.

It was good to see the students showing off their work to their family and friends.




And I especially loved that Jackson Pond has four generations of his family there to help him celebrate his art! 

Good job everyone.  The Art Campers Art Display will be at the Community Center until the first week in November.  Please stop by and see their wonderful art for yourself!

We had the BEST weeks of Art Camp this summer.  Some of you may have watched as the kids progressed with their work.  We studied impressionism, post-impressionism, modern & abstract art. 

This afternoon from 5-6 at the Community Center there will be a reception for these young artists.  If you are in Front Royal and would like to stop by and join us and encourage these  young artists that would be great!

Hope to see you there.

  Suzanne’s Scarecrow, acrylic on panel, 6″x8″, $135.  This is another in the farm animal series that I started a few years ago thanks to Chicken’s in the Road’s Suzanne McMinn.  She has a terrific blog; check it out.  And she takes fabulous photos of her animals and has graciously allowed me to use them as inspiration for this series.  Thanks again Suzanne.  We all love your babies!

 Schnauzer is an acrylic on 12″x12″ canvas.  And thanks to a generous collector in Front Royal, he was purchased with proceeds going to help build the Off-leash dog park.  Many thanks.

The “Bark for the Park” series is on display at the Daily Grind on Main Street in Front Royal.  Stop in and take a look.  And if you would like to help us build the dog park, send a donation to Warren County Dog Park Association, 939 S. Marshall St., Front Royal, VA  22630.  We are so close to our goal.  Please help if you can!

 Lucy II is an acrylic on canvas.  This is the second painting of Lucy.  the first was one I did for the “Bark for the Park” series and it was purchased in the spring.  But Lucy is my cousin’s dog and she wanted a version of Lucy so this one was finally completed and mailed off to Georgia.
