Two years ago today, August 1st, we opened The Studio on Main Street in Front Royal.  Happy Birthday!  I was asked why we celebrate the opening as a birthday instead  of anniversary.  It is because for many of us The Studio is like a living thing!  It’s been a “friend” to many as it has provided a place to gather and learn.  And learn we have over the past two years.

We have had classes and workshops featuring painting (of course) and jewelry making, yard totems, wreathes, holiday gifts, tennis shoe painting, kids classes, cupcake and cookie decorating, felting, drawing, crocheting, knitting, quilting, Pet Portraits, coloring, flower arranging, collage, painted trays and buckets, Gelli printing, tee-shirt remakes, team building, trips to museums and so much more!!!

Last year on  our “Birthday” we had a wonderful Birthday Party with lots of free projects for everyone to try.  (See more here.)  And we are planning to do it again.  We invite you to help us celebrate on Monday, August 29th from 5-7 pm with another evening of great cake and fun projects for adults and kids.  Please  mark your calendar now and come celebrate The Studio with us!

We can’t wait to see  what happens in our 3rd year!!!!  We hope you will be a part of the fun and learning.

Allen is my biggest supporter.  He is the one who encouraged me to become a full-time painter.  I never would have had the courage to try without his urging and support.

And when I ask him what he wants for his birthday (or Valentine’s Day or Christmas) he almost always says art.  What a guy!

So here are some of the paintings I have done for him over the years.  Needless to say he has a very large art collection.

I love you  – Happy Birthday Allen!

Friday morning I woke up and realized I really had not made any plans for my birthday on Saturday.  So I decided to go to DC for the night.  I love Washington, especially the National Gallery of Art so I booked room at the Hyatt Regency, one of the closest hotels to the gallery.  It was storming really hard when I got there around 3 p.m. but the people couldn’t have been sunnier!  When the young man checking me in came back after copying my i.d. and credit card he said, “It’s your birthday!”  I said “Yes, tomorrow.”  The young lady working with him at the registration desk said, “OMG, mine too!”  I said we must be twins then.  She laughed (could have been because she was a tall, beautiful, slender Black girl and I’m a dumpy white middle aged chick) and told him to upgrade my room.  Then he gave me a coupon for breakfast.  She told him to also give me a $50 room credit since I was 50!  WOW!  I felt really special.

I spent a wonderful evening having dinner and then relaxing and reading about the Chester Dale exhibit that I was planning to visit at the NGA the next morning.  I wake on my birthday, have a wonderful breakfast (on the house) and start out for the National Gallery.  The capital view above is right out of the front door of the hotel.  As I walk closer I realize there is some kind of rally going on at the capital.  I walk right up to within about 30 feet of the stage and see that it is the Dalai Lama.  He was in town for a conference on world peace.  So I listen for awhile and get a few shots. 

It was really crowded.  You can see the capital lawn was full of people.

What a surprise and joy to get to hear his message about making a better world by making a better self.  Talk about being in the right place at the right time.  What a wonderful birthday message.

Come back tomorrow for Birthday Adventure Part II – National Gallery of Art.
