Back to my own work


We just had the North River Arts Society Festival of the Arts. It is always so much fun. We had great weather, a great crowd, wonderful artists, artisans, entertainers, children and dogs. I was lucky to get 2 pieces in this year, one of which is above. And I was thrilled when I saw the model who posed for this show up on Saturday to take in the event. I hadn't seen her since I painted her at our Thursday drop in sessions at the GAR hall. She is a wonderful model with incredible features. I hope she comes back soon as I would love to paint her again. The juried and photography shows run through this weekend so there is still time to see all the marvelous work. Today and tomorrow until 12 noon and then Saturday and Sunday from 1-4.
Some great artist friends who were demoing for the weekend
Christine Bodnar, Donna Rossetti Bailey and Ann Musto
I think Ann's painting sold right off her easel.

It was exciting seeing my artist friend Jody's daughter working on her Mom's painting. She is keeping the tradition of painting alive in her family. 3rd Generation artist.
Jody's blog is listed under "my favorite links".
I was so busy working the Festival, I didn't get to take a lot of pictures. Next year…
Now it's time to get back to my own painting. Looking forward to lots of painting this summer.
