Lakeside Mercantile

Lakeside Mercantile and Linda's Greenhouse are fun places to shop for antiques, crafts, and beautiful plants at Walnut Hill near Lake Martin and Dadeville, Alabama.  On some days, you can see this vintage truck in mint condition parked out front.  A great selection of flowers and plants is arriving now.

I am happy that this painting was accepted for the juried Fine Art Show at Auburn CityFest 2014.  Please come to the preview reception open to the public on Thursday, April 24 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and to the show on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Nunn Winston House at Kiesal Park.

This beautiful beach in the British Virgin Islands is the spot where my nephew asked his new bride to marry him.  They were on a week long sailboat cruise of the islands.  Welcome to the family, Christine!

Big Sur

The craggy coastline of northern California holds many beautiful vistas.  It is one of my favorite vacation destinations.  My brother and I had a great trip together out there last summer.  We had dinner outside one evening on a deck overlooking the Pacific.  Ruby throated bluebirds flew in and out of the trees quite undaunted by the restaurant full of guests.

Big Sur will be available at the Let There Be Art sale and celebration, opening with a gala evening Friday night at the Museum of Fine Art in Columbus, Georgia.  The show will run through April 17.  I hope you can come!

Lilies and Marigolds

My talented daughter in law helped me set up this still life on the deck at the lake.  We liked the composition and pops of color.  The reflections of sky and water can be seen in the glass vases.  Lilies and Marigolds will be featured in Let There be Art next week at the Columbus Museum.
