I will thank the Lord because he is just; I will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High. Psalm 7:17:
Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!
I hope everyone has a safe and healthy Thanksgiving this year.
In December the Tennessee Residence hosts tours displaying ornaments highlighting each county. It has been several years since the original ornaments were commissioned, I believe Debbie Schmidt painting the last one in 2012. This year they decided to refresh the collection. They asked me to participant in the Tennessee County Ornament Project 2020. Houston County has so much going for it, it was hard to decide what to feature. I picked the Lime Kiln & Quarry, the Danville Elevator in Kentucky Lake and the Magnolia Swimming Hole since it was recently picked one of the tope 10 swimming holes in Tennessee. I mailed it yesterday.

I wanted better lighting so I moved my studio to where I am now. I'm pretty happy with that decision. Above is then, below is now!
I'm very happy and proud that this painting has a home. I'm very thankful for wonderful people who continue to encourage me in my journey as an artist. I hope every time they look at it, they love it and they smile. Thanks so much!
I liked the way they turned out. They aren't the prettiest bird but the very entertaining. They are also the Tennessee State Bird! The DAC Bazaar opens this Thursday at 5:00pm for the Art Walk Downtown Clarksville, They will be open Fridays 1-5 and Saturdays 11-4 and by appointment. You can call me or email for an appointment.
I'm thinking about painting a few Mockingbirds this year. What do you think, or do you have a suggest for a different bird ornament this year?
The beautiful weather was a real plus this weekend while painting outside (plein air) in Clarksville during the 2Rivers Plein Air Paint Out. I painted this one Saturday and I liked the way it turned out. While I was painting, I ran into a fellow classmate from 50 plus years ago, that was especially nice. It was a great weekend to be outside. I painted Friday but I didn't like that painting so I'm not sharing.
Clarksville Montgomery County sponsors a Plein Air Paint Out every October. This years event will take place October 16 & 17th, Friday and Saturday. You might see some of us painting in town or Liberty Part. Due to the Covid 19 virus there will be pre-cautious in place. No reception is planned, but a online gallery of the painting and award will still be given for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and honorable mentions.

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.
