Sand Sculptures


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

While in Philadelphia we popped by The Shops at Liberty Place and the lobby was filled with these amazing sand sculptures.  You can see more info here.  They were amazing….and big!

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.

We’re in Philadelphia for a few days for a little Birthday Vacation.  Yesterday we explored Independence Hall area where we saw the Hall as well as the Liberty Bell.

We also so some interesting sites along our walk there.


Next it was off to see City Hall and sites along the way including Reading Terminal market.  I always get great reference photos there.  Today it’s off to the Barnes Foundation…my favorite art museum!

20180624_171904.jpgYesterday we had another terrific day creating art at Belle Grove in Middletown.  We painted the beautiful view from the front of the mansion.  There is not a bad view out of any window of the house but the view from the front porch is AMAZING.  And we had 14 painters who enjoyed painting their versions of it.  20180624_171959.jpgGreat work everyone!  It was so much fun working with you.  We all enjoyed it so much that we are planning to hold a few more painting events there soon.  Stay tuned.

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.
