While visiting the Biltmore we also went to Antler Hill Village on the property and of course, my favorite thing there was the bronze of Cornelia and Cedric….the Vanderbilt daughter and her dog.  There was also a few pieces of Chihuly there.

We made the trip to Asheville to see Chihuly at the Biltmore.


It was amazing!

Even though the weather was a little overcast and even misting part of the time it was still amazing to see…both in the day and the evening.  Read more about the exhibit here.

We had such a delightful day at Belle Grove on Saturday and enjoyed painting out under the trees.  The day couldn’t have been better.  Thanks to everyone who came out to paint or came by to say hello.  It was wonderful seeing everyone.

Sand Sculptures


I’m always saying that art is all around us if we just look….and sometimes it jumps out at us.

20180716_095949.jpgYesterday we went to the National Constitution Center.  It wasn’t anything we really planned to do.  We were waiting for the Christ Church Burial Grounds to open as we wanted to pay our respects to Ben Franklin but we were early so we went over to the National Constitution Center to check it out.  I’m glad we did.  I love history and especially old documents like the Declaration and the Constitution.  Those who know me well know that I have carried a copy of the Constitution in my purse since I was 16 years old.  (The 4th iteration of the little Constitution booklet I carried was stolen along with my wallet recently so I picked up a new copy here.) 20180716_211442.jpg20180716_095912.jpgThe displays were informative and timely-they were playing on the current popularity of Hamilton.  But the surprise I found here was in the Signer’s Hall.  It featured 42 life size statues of signer’s of the Constitution.


You could walk though; touch them; compare their sizes.  It was fascinating.  And once again proves you can find art everywhere  you go.  Worth a visit.
