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!

One of the things I enjoyed seeing most at the PGA practice rounds at Quail Hollow this week was the large number of young people there.  And many of them were asking for autographs that most of the players were happy to give them.  There were a few who were “too busy or self-important” to oblige these fans (and shame on them) but the majority of the ones I saw took time out to sign hats, programs, flags, etc. for several minutes while moving from green to tee and especially coming off of the 18th Green where many fans waited for them.  And when they did it made the day of the fan.  What a tremendous way to promote the sport with these young people.  We spoke with Luke Shenigo (age 12) who came all the way from Akron, OH with his family to watch some golf and meet his favorite golfers.  He was very proud of the amazing autographs he got and said they were very nice while signing his flag. This is a piece of “art” he will hang on his wall for years to come.

We’re at Quail Hollow at the 2017 PGA Championship watching a few practice rounds of golf.

It was beautiful yesterday even though it was rainy.  That didn’t stop the players from practicing or the spectators from watching.  PGA7Hoping today to get a little better photos if the rain stops….probably no sunshine but just having less rain will help.

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???!!!!!!

This weekend was Art in the Barn at Belle Grove in Middletown.  I was invited to submit a few paintings (one sold, WooHoo!) and to demonstrate on Saturday.  I was set up in the barn that morning and worked on a floral for a few minutes but I kept looking at the scene in front of me….out the door of the barn and I loved what I saw so I switched and worked on a smaller painting of the little scene out front.  I got quite a bit done and will finish it in The Studio.  You should go to Belle Grove if you get a chance.  It’s beautiful there.  I’ll be going back soon to paint again.
