Getting it together!



I have been on a painting frenzie!  Now that I have free weekends from my postal service job life is fun again. This past Sunday, went kayaking with my husband down the Santa Fe River and it was great, I will post that adventure next time, amazing photos coming.  I went walking with Bullwinkle the best Great Dane in the world, and taking beautiful morning pics on our property in High Springs.

So getting it together for my upcoming show again at Thornebrook Art Festival, Sat. and Sun. Sept, 29-30. in Gainesville.  It is right off of 43 Street. Click on the link and see all the info. The top two pics are paintings I have been working on for a couple of weeks for it.  The St. Augustine Lighthouse and Tiger Swimming II are all ready for the festival.  One of two paintings I have done of the tiger were pics taken at the Jacksonville Zoo.  The St. Augustine pic was a combination of several pics from the past.  The bottom pic is three paintings that I just started, one of my property, one of a super farm by LaCrosse, Florida after the rain last week, and and the bottom one of the amazing horses that live next door of our road.  I had to work for Karen last Saturday at the art coop and was able to get lot of work done. See you soon!

Busy Busy Busy

 Lots of things happening.  Thornebrook Art Festival is right around the corner.  The last weekend of September, 9/29-30, so I am crazy busy trying to finish some recent paintings.  It rained the entire day so I got a lot of painting done at the coop.  There were so few customers.  I decided to add some more landscapes to my showing. Here is the St. Augustine Lighthouse. I always loved it and I think it will make an interesting painting to hang at Thornebrook. It is not completed but it should be next week.  I will have this one, The Tiger, and "Refuge", St. Pauls Chapel painting all done by next weekend.

This past week, I was really excited because I was invited to participate in the 10th World Paint Out held at the Kanapaha Botanical Gardens here in Gainesville, Fl.  I will be painting live at the gardens on Sept. 14, and 15 and then hang my work at their gallery.  It is my first large paint out and it is a privilege that I was selected.  Great artists and friends Tim Malles and Sue Johnson will be doing it too so it should be lots of fun.  I will fill you in on more in the coming weeks.

Some of you know that our dog Scooby, the fawn Great Dane we rescued 4 years ago has been quite sick. Something happened to his leg, three weeks ago and he hasn't been the same since.  It went limp and then got infected. He lost his appetite and came close to being put down.  With the help of Hilltop Animal Hospital he is much better now.  Although he is still limping but the infection is under control.  He is eating most of the time but he keeps having accidents in the house so I have to keep him quarantined in the kitchen.  I am not sure if it is the large amount of antibiotics he is on or if he has some other underlying problem.  I will keep you posted on his progress.
