I took a few reference photos while out on the Route 11 Yard Crawl yesterday.  You never know what you might see from cats in a window to a barn quilt and old Dodge truck!

I bought my ticket back in December…the day they went on sale.  And I’ve waited patiently (well, sort of) for the day to arrive.  It was my Birthday present to myself.  And finally the day arrived.  I traveled to DC with my good buddy, Sandy.  We came early and made a day of it.  The rain came down but that didn’t deter us.  By concert time the clouds lifted and it was perfect.

JAMES TAYLOR and BONNIE RAITT!!!!  Can you believe it?  Together.  They were awesome!  They played a few new songs but a LOT of old favorites.  I especially like the one he sang about Sunny Skies…the pug!  🙂  Often, when I look forward to something for this long I am disappointed when it arrives but this did NOT disappoint.  I do love me some James Taylor!  I wish the photos were clearer but you can get the idea from these.  Did I mention it was AWESOME???!!!!!!

Jed’s Birthday

Yesterday we celebrated Jed’s 10th birthday by going to the dog park to run and play. This was a great way to start the day. Jed has been such a good boy all these years and we are just grateful that we found him. Happy Birthday old boy!  We hope you have many more!

The very first Paint Party ever at Capon Springs was a HUGE success!  The painters were terrific and did a fabulous job creating a beautiful work of art featuring the Band Stand at the Resort.

Capon Springs is an all inclusive family mountain resort …. and while it is only about 32 miles from Front Royal it seems a really long way away.  It’s like going back in time.  I told my friend who went last night to help with the Paint Party that it is “32 miles and 6 decades away”!  It’s wonderful.  You can learn more about it here.  We had a grand time enjoying dinner there before the Paint Party.  It was delightful to see all these multi-generational families sitting together passes plates and bowls of food around the table and having conversations while dining.  I am thrilled that Jonathan, one of the owners of this gem, has invited me to come back and teach again.

I’ll be back for another Paint Party and we will also be offering a multi disciplined Art Week in the Fall.  Stay tuned for more info soon.  You will definitely want to plan to go for a few days.

What struck me most as I saw the Matisse in The Studio exhibit is how he used his collection of objects time and time again in his paintings.  He had a group of items that were special to him and often put them in his still-life set-ups.  In this series today you will see his chocolate pots.
