Lipizzaner Stallions in Nashville

This afternoon my hubby and I went to see the Lipizzaner Stallions at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. I think this is my 4th time seeing them and I still get a lump in my throat and teary eyes at sometime during the show, never fail ! I remember my Dad taking me to Philadelphia to see them when I was a teenager so many years ago. It will NOT be the last time I see them either because they are living history. I'll never get tired of watching them. Their beauty is just manifested on so many's really hard to put into words. We got floor seats for the first time and I am thrilled to have gotten the chance to watch the show from that position. Looking UP at those majestic horses just 6 feet away.... WOW. So, if they come to your town please support their show by attending and cheering them on ...loudly !

Art in Bloom Show and Sale 2010

This weekend is the annual Art in Bloom Art Show and Sale presented by the Gallatin Junior Service League. This show benefits women's and children's charities of the greater Gallatin, Sumner Co. TN area. I'm bringing along some more small wildlife paintings to add to the horses this year. For example, shown here is "Red Fox Backlight" , a 5 x 7 oil on canvas, $160. Our local fox has no idea how many images he has inspired ! I haven't seen him for a while but hope he survived this winter, which for Tennessee , was a cold one.
Spring can't be far away......makes me want to paint foals, baby goats,sheep and birds etc !
Come on out to the Bluegrass Country Club on Johnny Cash Parkway this weekend on Saturday and see what 40 local artists have to show ! It'll be an eclectic mix of styles..... something for everyone.
