I found these little drawings I did when I first went back to college in 1980,
I was 30 with two children.
I was a stay at home Mom with my husband and two little boys. We lost a friend in an accident. The wife was left with two very young children. It scared me, what if that happened to me. So I decided to go back to school. It wasn't easy, it was one of the hardest things I've ever done. But I did it. Then I became a Graphic Artist with the State of Tennessee and on to teaching Art, Commercial Art, Graphic Arts, Digital Design and Animation. my wonderful husband is still with me and the kids are grown with families of their own. Best decision I ever made, it gave me peace of mind.
My friends, Amy & Kenny have a beautiful home on a creek in Houston County. There is also an old doctor's office near the house, to the left of the house sitting back a little. There are huge trees, a gorgeous creek, a barn across the road and in the Spring, lots of wildflowers. It's a perfect place to paint and I do appreciate them letting us paint there. It is picture perfect, and lots of pictures.
I painted two days in Downtown Clarksville, at the annual 2Rivers Paint Out. I also participated in the quick draw. I'll post it later, it's still at the studio along with the other painting I did.
A wonderful morning at Radnor Lake learning about watercolor plein air painting
Another artist friend and I traveled to Radnor Lake in Nashville for a watercolor plein air demo by Judson Newbern. The event was sponsored by the Chestnut Group. Members of the Chestnut's donate their time and talents for workshops during the Paint Your Hearts Out workshop fundraiser event. I always try to take advantage of the wonderful and helpful workshops.

I will have 6 to 8 works at the exhibit during October at the DAC Gallery. Our group tries to paint together every Monday morning. We have never had a show together before. One thing you might notice is the subject matter may be the same. We all paint differently and/or use different media. Leah, Mary, Eunice and I do watercolor. Betty is our pastel artist. Henrietta, Yuson, Jo and Betty use oils most of the time. Gail uses acrylic paints. The subject matter may be the same but they will be very different.
If it's too hot or too cold, we try to meet at the DAC and paint a still life from a set up. Everyone is super nice in the group and we always enjoy our time painting.
I've been a little down hearted since the studio flooded. Most everything is back to normal extra the motivation to get back to work. Last Saturday I did a little plein air painting and I so enjoyed it. So Wednesday, I went in and put finishing touches on that plein air painting and a few I did in Monteagle in the Spring. It felt good to be at the studio. I hope it's enough to get me going again. It's been since August 24 that I've painted in the studio. I plan to be back in on Monday and getting back to a normal routine once again.
Betty Liles and I moved our art exhibit that we had at the DAC in July to the Gallery at the Hopkinsville Community College Auditorium Building. 720 North Drive., Hopkinsville, KY. We were able to add a few extra pieces as the Gallery is so large. We are trilled to be the first artists to exhibit at HCC since the Covid shut down. We have 56 artworks on display. Please stop in if you're in the area.
Minimum damage, just a water soaked carpet and very little mud. Three watercolor paintings got wet but I think its just the matting that was damaged, not the paintings. I lost some mat board and that's about it. I spent yesterday packing up some things to take to the house so I could clear the floor. My landlord was good enough to send in a cleaning guy to get the water up and out. I am feeling very blessed. Just down the road, especially Waverly is just awful.. Prayers for Waverly.
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.
