On the recent trip to North Carolina we saw many, many barns with lovely Barn Quilts gracing them.  I love the look of a  pop of color attached above the door or to the side of a barn or shed.  They are wonderful pieces of Folk Art.  I think we should make some soon for our barns and sheds.  Start thinking about where you can put yours.

Yesterday was such a wonderful day at Belle Grove.  I started out with a group painting a little wildflower painting.  They were delightful and we had such a nice time.

 

Then it was back over in the afternoon for the “Meet the Artists” reception at the mansion.  This year Belle Grove offered the art of Wayne Laws, Sally Veach and me (Kelly Walker)!  It was so fun to see art in the mansion.  It is still going on until close today so if you are over Middletown way you have to stop in and see it.

The art show at Belle Grove is FAST approaching. Get all the details here.  It’s hard to believe it was January when we told you about the invitation to show art at the Belle Grove Plantation.  You can read about that here.  Make plans now to come.  There will be something going on each day in addition to the art sale that benefits Belle Grove.  We will be having two Paint Parties….one that the iconic image of the Signal Knob, the view from the porch at Belle Grove and one is for all ages (Wildflowers) so get the kids rounded up and come join in.  You can click here to register for the Paint Parties.

20180603_185925.jpgThe Shenandoah River flowed over it’s banks yesterday after we got another 4 inches of rain.  The ground is so saturated from rain all last month so this just pushed it out further.  Many people have flooded basements and yards.  We are hoping that the rain has stopped for a while and that the sun will soak up some of this water. The photo above is looking east at the South Fork of the Shenandoah River on the right and the banks overflowed on the left.  Below is the North Fork of the Shenandoah River looking west. That’s the river on the left and the flooded bank on the right.  Wow!20180603_190815-1.jpg

This past week I spent a little time with a Girl Scout troop helping them achieve their Drawing Badge.  It was a good evening. (Thanks Scott Turnmeyer for the photo.)

Christmas with the Boys 2017Ten years ago today I started my blog, Life of a Daily Painter.  Hard to believe it’s been 10 years.  Last year for the anniversary post I share a look back.  (See that here.)  This year I just want to say how grateful I am to have people still following along to see what we are doing at The Studio.  The boys and I thank you so much!  Let’s see what this next year brings.10513396_797952213571586_3090502766858340446_n
