Hanging Art

 

We spent the morning hanging art at Belle Grove for the show this week.  Everyone is invited to come and be a part of their first art show in the house.  I’m excited.  Here is a link to all the activities…and note the Meet the Artists Party on Saturday evening.  It’ll be fun!

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.

Yesterday morning was my last day at Capon Springs for the Spring Art Retreat.  We had a terrific time creating beautiful art.  Many people got to try painting for the first time and some rediscovered an old love.  It’s fun for me to watch people discover their artistic side.  The other wonderful thing about Capon are the many traditions that they have.  The place runs like clockwork.  Meals served at a certain time; the same menu week after week.  It’s like visiting an old friend.  You know what to expect and it’s a very satisfying feeling.  Capon FlagIt’s also nice to see the staff taking time to help everyone build memories…especially the kids.  They clamor to help….especially with the traditional things like raising the flag.  These two kids will long remember assisting Jonathan raise the flag while we all looked on and sang the National Anthem.  It’s my favorite part of each morning at Capon Springs and Farm.

Yesterday was our last day of painting at Capon Springs for our Spring Art Retreat.  And we didn’t waste a bit of time.  A few painters finished up some lovely works of art and last night eight painters created beautiful geraniums at the Paint Party.  20180525_075354.jpgWhat fun we have had helping people discover (or rediscover) their artistic sides.  Once again, it’s been a delight to spend time in the magical place called Capon Springs.  Make the time to come and see the magic for yourself.  And if you can make it coincide with out Fall Artist Retreat from September 23-28, 2018, all the better.  You won’t regret it!

I know I said it last fall when I was here for the first Artist’s Retreat but Capon Springs & Farm is a magical place.

It’s so off the beaten path that it’s hard to believe that it is just 35 miles from my Studio in Front Royal.  And I am always amazed that more local people don’t even know about it.  They are missing out on a real treat.

It’s beautiful here and the perfect place to hold an artist’s retreat…tons of inspiration.  Can’t wait to help folks learn to paint today!  Check Capon Springs out here.  It is a great place for a few days away to unwind.  And it’s not too late to come to the Retreat.  We’ll be here until Friday.
