EVENTS OF AUGUST
Living the Life Show is down. The current show at the Grand Mesa Arts and Events Center features Arleta Pech. .She is an amazing still-life painter in the Baroque style. Her opening is Saturday the 18th of August from 5-7. I hope you can drop by and see her showing in the Starr Family Gallery.
Young artists participated in the acrylic painting class at the Grand Mesa Arts and Events Center on August 15. What great fun we had painting fantastic creatures. What great kids, and so involved in their art. I was honored to be their instructor. Maryellen is finishing up in Cedaredge and soon to be on her way to Florida. A final yard sale this next week Friday Aug. 24 8-2, and Sat. 9-noon. She is getting rid of everything. Lots of great buys, since everything must go. 180 NE 4th St. Unit A, Cedaredge. Don't forget us. I won't forget her.
This year has been, so far, a year of beginnings and endings. The art center is a great addition to our little town, and blossoming increasingly. Maryellen leaves to continue her art in Florida, ending a twenty year friendship and business history that was great fun. Bittersweet, this passing of an era. I'll miss her.
The drought makes gardening a past activity. Being a farm girl makes this a hard one to let go. I guess I'll just paint cabbages.
New friends and activities are keeping me busy. I've been working on acrylic painting. I have books to illustrate.
Oh rats, I'm nostalgic.
So. I'll share
a couple of my acrylics, and get on with the next adventure.
