Shaker Village Still Life #2
design and understated color.
Linda bought a "light box" for me to take my
photo's in. Sounds so easy... I should have
much clearer photos of my paintings...
We will see, bare with me while I experiment!
We are back home after 6 days away!
The Franciscan Monastery was a bit of a
disappointment. Just not what Linda was
hoping for, she thinks maybe around Easter
time would be better but I don't think we'll
go back. We did a quick walk around the
grounds and then changed plans and headed
to an old favorite of ours called
Kenilworth Aquadic Gardens. Its in a really
rough end of DC but worth the drive, just lock
your doors! I took about 100 photos of water
lilies in every color possible!
Thursday, Abbey went with us to Hillwood Estate
which was excellent but I did not take many
photos. It was great seeing Abbey and Ben.
Then it was off to Portsmouth VA for a show.
Great weather, so-so crowds and so-so sales.
I did get a painting almost finished...
Below is a photo of me painting at the
Seawall Art Show in VA. The photo was
taken by Alvin Swilley...
