thinking out loud....

So today I'm getting ready to make a delivery to Rehoboth Beach, DE.....and I have to unload my car from my trip to Asheville.....by the way! THANK YOU Asheville. I love that city! I'm already craving the Early Girl......but back to what I was thinking about....I think I'm actually going to load all my available paintings online! So many people ask me to do that, but i'm always getting ready for something and things sell. I'm not sure if it will be on etsy or something different? I will let you know! Thanks for listening to my rambling thoughts :)
Here is a picture of a very happy bear.....


Asheville here I come!

Ok guys, I'm really excited. This weekend I'm heading to Asheville, NC. One of my all time favorite places to go! Usually I'm most excited to eat while I'm there, but this time I'm in a show. The Big Crafty at The Asheville Art Museum.  Check out their page for all the important details.....while you're there check out the vendor list! Seriously fun shopping and art viewing.

Fun Show!

 Last night was the opening reception of Small Things. The first group show put on by Berlin's Arts and Entertainment Committee. It was great! There was a huge crowd of all ages....pretty much all night. A really great array of paintings and photos, mixed media and a sculpture. 
My photos aren't that great. I wish I had taken more. Such a fun way to spend a Friday night in January.
Lots of people....
Austin suffered for his art...
Brian and Mark hanging stuff.
