Shelbyville Art Guild sponsored an Art Walk through downtown last Friday night. I was hosted by Mr. Tim Crawford, Lawyer. He made me feel right at home. Thank you Mr. Crawford.

The crowd was light. The weather was a little wet. Not really a great atmosphere for taking a walk. But, the people that braved the weather were friendly and fun to talk with.

I had some note cards made from one of my paintings "Penn's Grocery." This is one of the cards.

Izzy and Bella

Izzy has put on a little weight since we brought her home. Which is a good thing. She loves playing with Bella. And Bella loves playing with her. Bella is over 10 years old..but she acts like a puppy since she got her new friend. We have tried to teach Bella to fetch for at least 8 years. With no luck. I guess Izzy showed her what it was all about. Now Bella will fetch most anything you throw. I guess we couldn't teach an old dog new tricks, but Izzy could.

This is a picture of the girls at play.

Fall and ThanksGiving

This is my one creation for fall and ThanksGiving. The pumpkin is from know the one they advertise as carve-able. I did have fun doing this. Table center piece? Maybe? It will get moved around the house until I think it has found a temporary home.

Christmas Ornaments

More bad pictures. But it will give you an idea of what kind of ornaments I have made lately. Sold quite a few back to making more. I do love to make them. So it will be a labor of love.

Buffalo Festival

That is where I have been today. Here it is October..should be cool, beautiful, weather. Instead it was in the 90s. We baked. Maybe even burned a little. But it was a good day. This festival is held in Stamping Ground, Kentucky. That is where I lived most of my life. It was like old home week. Ran into lots of old friends and many relatives. Sold a few ornaments and made a little money at the same time.

An old Friend of mine, Sue Wash, and some other friends of hers make quilts for charity. They have made 100 quilts in two years. They raffled off a quilt today in order to make money to buy more fabric for more quilts. A lady named Debbie won. I tried to convince her that that was my name...but no luck.

One more craft show and one more art show to go. Then I can start to think about a November birthday and Christmas.. Oh My!

Here are a few pictures taken today. My daughter and her son Cody. My son in law, Patrick and my Mom. We had 4 generations represented today.

Painting finished and another one

I finished the old barn. The other painting is one I taught in class last month. It is of Jackson Lake in Wyoming. I wish I had taken a picture of my students work. It was really good.

Painting in Progress

I'm working to get ready for ARTraction of Shelbyville. I will be sitting a display of art work up at one of the local shops in Shelbyville, KY. As of this moment I do not know which shop or what kind of space I will be given. The event is scheduled for October 26. So, I thought I would share what I am working on today. This barn is on HWY 395 not far from my house.

Kai's RR recipe journal

Oh My! I didn't realize I hadn't posted anything since August. September did go by in a whirl. I was busy, very busy. If I would get better organized and take pictures I could show you what I have been up to. Mostly, up to my neck in Christmas Ornaments.

But this is about Kai's RR journal. I did a less is more on her page. And I like the way it turned out.
