Kids Paint Sunflowers

kids-sunflowerThe kids did an awesome job on their sunflower paintings yesterday.  Great work!

And then, because I had on my “Bob Ross for President” Tee shirt they asked who he is.  So we watched a few minutes of Bob on Netflix.  They  loved him…..what’s not to love about Bob Ross??!!

20160920_215212.jpgOnce again the Temperature Blanket is up-to-date.  It’s getting really long.  I may make a change in the design to widen it out over the last three months.  I do like how it’s coming along though.

This is the final photos from the fundraiser for The Blue Ridge Wildlife Center.  (I promise.)

I don’t know why I got so many photos of Apple Blossom, the opossum but I did.  Maybe because she was very cute…or maybe because she was so photogenic.  Anyway, here she is in all her glory.

View from Oxbow Farm

I attended one  of the most interesting events last night at Oxbow Farm in Warren County.  It was a fundraising event for The Blue Ridge Wildlife Center.  It was fascinating to see some of the animals that they have had come to their center and that have been rehabilitated that now serve as educational ambassadors.  These animals, for some reason or other, cannot be released back into the wild so they live at the center and help educate the public about the purpose of the center.

There was Snow, the Arctic Fox, that was rescued from a house in Prince William County.  And Apple Blossom, the opossum, whose mother was killed by a car with the babies still attached to her.  Such sad stories…  But BRWC is doing wonderful work to rehabilitate these animals and get them back to their  natural habitat.

A Rapture Owl was released.  It was a beautiful animal but definitely wild…not like the other animals we met that are being used for education.  This one was found on a construction site and fit into the palm of the hand of the woman who rescued and helped rehab it.  And last night she released it.  You can shttps://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fkellywalkerstudios%2Fvideos%2F10207384416743745%2F&show_text=0&width=400“>ee a video here

kids-trees-on-wc-paperThis week at our Kid’s Painting class we learned that you don’t always have to use a brush to make a beautiful painting.  We used paper towels to create these “Fall Abstract Trees” on watercolor paper.

Aren’t they FABULOUS??!!

And in the last few weeks we have painted Bicycles and the River.  If you have a   young artist or want-to-be artist ages 7-12 contact Kelly at kwalker@kellywalkerstudios.com to sign them up for class.

oxbow-farm-fieldI am excited to be going to a fundraiser this weekend for the Blue Ridge Wildlife Center.  (Check out there good work here.)  And I was even more thrilled to be invited to donate a “Plein Air Private Session” as an auction item.

The event is going to be held at Oxbow Farm where I have painted in Plein Air many times thanks to the kind owner.  This painting is one I did several years ago while out for a day of painting sunflowers.  After painting the sunflowers (See it here) I turned around and this was the view.  I loved it too.  Actually there are no bad views there.  It’s beautiful.
