Art in the Swiss Avenue Historic District...

If someone invited you to their historic mansion, you would probably remember what time to arrive, right? Well, I arrived an hour too early to drop off my painting, Sanctuary, at this beautiful home in the Swiss Avenue Historic District in Dallas. The gracious host swore it was all his fault and he must have had the time wrong. All of the artists participating in Artscape had pieces featured here at a party yesterday evening. I hope when I pick up my painting this weekend, all will be forgiven, and I can see a bit more of this beautiful home.

This is a big month for arts at the Dallas Arboretum. They announced this week they will be sponsoring another Garden Paintout beginning September 20. I'll be at the Arboretum on weekends in September and October capturing some of their latest blooms on canvas. Something tells me it is going to be a bit cooler painting there this month than it was in July! Artscape on the Arboretum grounds kicks off September 20-21, with food, entertainment, and artists in tents hoping it doesn't rain. I'm pretty excited, it's my first outdoor show. *note to self to pack mosquito repellant and comfy shoes*

During the month of September, you can also stop by the DeGolyer House on the Arboretum grounds to see two of my works that were selected for the juried art show from the Mayflower Paintout, Splash and Sanctuary. For more details on all the art stuff happening at the Arboretum, visit the Events section of my web site.

Thanks Melissa! I wish you lived closer, too. Then again, Howie and Emmypants would be getting into all sorts of trouble if they hung out together for very long....

Oh what a beautiful house that is and sounds like some fun for later in the month too.

This past weekend, my parents went to Colorscape in Norwich. I use to go to it and we had Denny Dent for the first 2 years. He painted large paintings with his hands to the music of the portrait he was painting too. I just loved wathing him paint and it was such a fun event for a small community.

Yours sounds like it is going to be really nice and fun as well. :o)

Better early than late Nancy! It all sounds very exciting for you! Sounds like you'll be busy for the next couple of months!
