Buggy B's Last night Buggy B’s, a wonderful little gift shop on King Street in Strasburg, VA, hosted an artist reception for the artist they represent.  If you haven’t been to Buggy B’s you should stop by to see them.  They have a beautiful gift selection as well as local arts and crafts.  And their resident florist, Barbara Plitt, makes beautiful arrangements with fresh or silk flowers.

It was a nice event and even gave the artists time to get to know each other better.  I enjoyed talking with Diane Furlong, a terrific pastel artist from Strasburg.  You can see her work here.

On the last Tuesday of the month we have an art workshop at Buggy B’s in Strasburg.  And this past Tuesday we worked on this painting, a glorious summer day with hay bails.


Here is Gloria and Francis getting a good start on their paintings.



And Tammy joined the mix as well painting the scene.  We all worked in acrylics and it took about an hour and a half and in the end we all had a nice finished result.

We are planning our next gathering.  It will be the last Tuesday in May.  Just let me know if you would like to join us.

I’m thrilled to have my work in Strasburg, VA, at Buggy B’s, a great little shop with furniture, flowers, and finishings!  It’s at 239 E. King Street.  Stop in next time you are in Strasburg or better yet, make a trip over to see the store.  It’s worth the trip.

You can see part of my “Big Fruit” series in one photo right above the wine.  Did I mention they have wine?!  🙂

As I mentioned last week, I was invited to paint in Strasburg Friday at their first Art Walk.  It happened to coincide with their annual Fireman’s Carnival Parade so there were loads of people downtown to watch the parade and they watched me paint.

You can see the progression of the work here.  Also, I had help from a few young people in selecting which picture they wanted me to paint.

And they even helped me put the finishing flowers in the painting.  I think they enjoyed it almost as much as the parade!

And the painting was about 90% finished by the time I left.  Finishing touches will go on this week and then I’ll post again.
