It’s rare that I get a day off when there is a great class being offered nearby that I can take.  It happened yesterday!  I went to The Mud Peddler Studio in Shepherdstown, WV and painted with my friend, Denise Kupiszewski.  She is an excellent teacher and helps you create beautiful pieces.  The event was so much fun that I can’t wait to try again.  We decorated two bowls, one we keep and the other is going to a fundraiser for a charity.  Nice, huh?  Everyone did something totally different and they were all fabulous.  Thanks Denise.  Let’s do it again soon…and maybe this time in Front Royal!

We lucked out coming to Asheville, NC to see the Chihuly exhibit at the Biltmore because the Asheville Quilt Guild is presenting their show.  We spent a little time there yesterday morning checking out the wonderful display.  So much creativity with fabrics….of course, my favorite was the painter!

And maybe the cow!

We are still creating amazing works of art at Capon Springs and Farms.  You HAVE to put it on your calendar for the Spring and come out and take part in all the fun here.  Take a look at what this delightful family from Athens, Georgia did yesterday.  Zoey really got into painting and started with a wonderful Alpacca and then she went on the paint a donut, a Pour Painting, and several little sunsets.  She was quite prolific!

And her mom and dad painted a flower and a bee.  Terrific!

 

Others created Pour Paintings on canvas or pumpkin shapes.  How terrific are these???!!!!  I see a class at The Studio in our futures.
