Shaker Home East

Today I delivered 10 new pastels to Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill, KY for a 3 person show with Bob Sanford and Dan McGrath. Shaker Village staff will hang the new pieces in the dining room this coming Friday. So while I was there I created this drawing of the east end of Shaker Village -- and I had a lovely lunch with Bob and Dan.

Back to changes. I think this image is a bit blurry. Guess I didn't hold the iphone steady enough but it's hard for me to tell because I had laser surgery yesterday as a follow up to cataract surgery and things are still a bit blurry. Isn't the world amazing now. Laser surgery one afternoon, no restrictions and off to Shaker Village the next day.

Things change so quickly but when I visit Shaker Village it's like life stood still. I like that feeling of quiet. It's very necessary when our world is spinning too fast.

Changing Winds

I've been vacationing in Spain visiting my daughter and haven't been to this site for much too long. Looks like some things have changed and it's funny that the image I created today at Shaker Village is titled "Changing Winds."
So let's see if I can get this blog created and correctly posted.
Along with changes to the blogspot software, I'm having trouble getting my images from my Canon camera to load up in the computer which may have something to do with the new Epson printer I installed. Gr-r-r, I'm not a techie. :-(
Not that you really want to read about this except to say that if the images look different it's because I have to shoot the pastel using my iphone camera which is actually a pretty good camera, then email it to myself to get it into the imac.
