“Museum Tulips”
oil, 6 x 6 on canvas panel

“Art in Bloom at the Museum”
oil, 8 x 8in on canvas panel

I had the best time yesterday. Pretty much was in hog heaven. I got to a) be in the art museum surrounded by beautiful paintings b) Hang out with other artists c)work from incredible floral arrangements d) Paint not one but two paintings e) have both paintings purchased by two beautiful ladies. Talk about a picture perfect day…all puns intended!
Now if the UK Art Museum could just arrange to have fresh flower set ups for me everyday and cater in some food…..hmmm….I think I could live there!

Seriously, the camaraderie of fellow painters mixed with art, artfully arranged flowers, and appreciative passersby–I am thankful to have spent the day so well. Here are some pics from the day….

Artist Mary Neely and Ann Pass with their paintings. One heckler, Ted Mudge, at my set up….in spite of which I still managed to paint….:)

And one more note…..My blog is officially one year old. 178 posts later…..:) That’s about one every other day. I think this calls for a cake. A large one. With lots of icing. Remember what Eddie says…..if no one sees you eating it, the calories don’t count……

    Just “discovered” your blog from another’s and glad I did – and you’re a Kentucky girl! Will definitely come back and see more work. I have never painted in oils but if I did, I’d like to think I’d paint this way – as one poster said “swishy brush work, vitality and movement.”ReplyCancel

    I love your lilting “swishy” brush work. There’s so much vitality and movement in your pieces. They sparkle.ReplyCancel
