I have six pen & inks up at the Tennova Hospital 4th floor. I'll have work there for the next 3 months. I'll be changing them out each month. 5th floor will feature DC Thomas's work.
I'm trying to decide on a few artworks to go to the Clarksville Hospital for the 4th or 5th floor. I'm to display work there starting in Oct. and will be up until the end of December. I think I'll start with a pen and ink display in Oct. and change it out for plein air in November. December, it will be all mixed up! I'll be putting it up in the next few days.
I was pulling my duty watching the Exhibit Hall at our county fair for 6 hours. I came prepared with pad and sharpie, so I drew this while I was there. The time went by very quickly. It still needs a little work for contrast but I'm happy with it.
Two years ago I painted these and a few more while I was in Cades Cove Tennessee.. Artist Kevin Menck puts together the retreat to the mountains every year and we all have a wonderful time. I've missed the last two years because I volunteer at the County Fair and I'm really missing it. This time of year is the best time to get some "Plein Air Painting " done. I've got to get out there.
sorry, but true! I'm getting ready for the Houston County Fair and I've been busy all last week getting the sign up sheets and notebooks ready for the exhibitors to sign in on. Next week in the FAIR starting Wednesday. I can't believe it's here and I'll be glad when its over. I hope everyone enjoys it and has a BLAST! It takes a lot of volunteers to pull off a FAIR!!
Painting with a friend in Clarksville on Monday, at the Train Depot.
Tuesday I delivered two artworks to the Riverfest Juried Show in Clarksville. Then stopped off to meet with the printers to start getting the word out on the 2018 Tennessee Watercolor Society Exhibition that will be at the Customs House Museum in Clarksville May - July!!! I was to help a friend put up her artwork at the Clarksville Athletic Club but the last artist hadn't retrieved their work yet.
So Thursday is the Clarksville Art Walk and I'll have artworks in three venues.
Riverfest at Wilma Rudolph Event Center., The TnWatercolor society's annual show at the Smith-Trahern Mansion and the DAC Gallery on Franklin St.

The Exhibit ends September 27th
I will have two of my watercolors in the exhibit.
Our youth minster is leaving us to continue his education in Theology. He asked me a while back to do a painting of our church for him, so I did. We presented it to him from our Sunday School Class at his "Good bye Party". I think he really liked it. We wish him the best on his journey and he will be missed. He's a home town boy and we are so very proud. We will miss you Tory!
Thank you Houston County for the "Peoples Choice Award" this year at Sweet Tea and Southern Art". You picked my watercolor painting "Colorful Fiddler" as your favorite. Sweet Tea and Southern Art is a beautiful annual showcase for local area artists. The artworks were all beautiful and the venue too. Thanks to the Houston County Art Council for hosting this wonderful event every August. I enjoy living in this community so much. This is our 6th year in Houston County.
It's Sweet Tea and Southern Art Time again in Erin, TN. on the square. Friday and Saturday form 10-4 and Sunday 1-4. The sponsors reception was tonight and I was very well attested. The food and company was wonderful.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
