Linda, Bonnie, John and "the artist" having dinner at
The Wharf in Alexandria, VA.

We had a whirlwind three days with friends. Started in
Alexandria with a walking tour, visited the Carlyle House,
Christ Church, took an evening boat ride to see
the Washington DC lights at night.  Day two was in
Fredericksburg, VA.  It has been years since I was there
and it has come a long way.  We started with a trolley tour,
went to Kenmore House and Gari Melchers House and Studio.
Day three was spent at the National Museum of the
Marine Corps
  which was a fantastic museum and well
worth it. I took 690 photos and am feeling inspired!
We were all on the look out for steeples to continue my
steeple series!  We returned home on Tuesday night
and needed to pack for my show in Kentucky.
By noon on Wednesday Linda was fussing about having a
10-11 hour drive so we decided to leave at 6pm and
drive a few hours, then finishing the drive today.  As of
now  we are sitting in the camper and I am working on
my blog!  Tomorrow I set up at the show at the
Shaker Museum in Pleasant Hill... I love this place.
We get free tickets to walk around so I expect another 600
photos and you will see more shaker paintings!

The Show:
August 4 & 5

Pleasant Hill Craft Fair
Held at the Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill
3501 Lexington Rd.  Harrodsburg, KY

Sat. 9:30-5  and Sun. 9:30-4:30

It looks like the bird is picking something out of the woman's hair. lol Other than that, it's a nice picture! I am enjoying seeing your paintings each day in my email. Have fun in Kentucky!
