A Song Singing - repost

10"x8" oil on RayMar panel, painted en plein air, alla prima...$85 including shipping...This was painted at Prater's Mill, near Varnell (GA) exactly one year ago today. I've never seen this water blue, even under the bluest sky. The sound of water rushing over the dam sings a melody of the coming Fall.
Prater's Mill Country Fair will be on October 9th & 10th this year. Ya'll come on out to see us there.

I must be nuts...

Evidently I've completely forgotten how much work an art fair can be. I applied to, and have been juried into, the annual Creative Arts Guild's Festival held in September in Dalton, GA. The staff and volunteers at the CAG see that the artists are given FREE breakfast both days...and a FREE dinner on Saturday night. Nice. This photo was taken a couple of years ago around 7:00am before things started hoppin'.

Like Last Year

7"x5" oil on RayMar panel, painted en plein air...This little archway trellis leans - so that's the way I painted it. My friend said she had taken it down, straightened it and re-set it. But it still leans. I think it has a charm all its own there amongst the flowers and grasses. This painting can be seen at Ringgold Frame Shop in Ringgold GA.
