(Learn more about the museum and their exhibits here.)   We had a large group of overachievers so of course, the did GREAT!  We painted a nice little spring valley scene with an apple tree.  Since some of the attendees were visiting from Pensacola, FL they got a nice little souvenir to take home.

Terrific work everyone!  And thanks for the really good time.

MSV Impressionist ExhibitYesterday was a rainy, messy day but that didn’t stop my friend Linda and I from a little day out.  We had a delightful day riding over to Middleburg, a cute little town about 25 miles from Front Royal, where we visited our favorite shop.  Then we rode over to the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester to see the new visiting exhibit:  American Impressionists.  It was a nice collection from the Reading Museum of painters from all around America who painted in the impressionistic style.  While they did not allow photography in the exhibit you can see more about it with some photos here.  It’s worth a trip to see while it’s here.
