Art Show in my neighborhood

We walked over to the Art Show last weekend.


It always amazes me at how many talented people there are right here in my community!


What fun to see all of the beautiful art, greet neighbors and meet new people.


We enjoyed it!


So what’s in the bag?

We bought one painting by Marilyn ‘Mickey’ Scott entitled “Denizens of the Deep”.


This was the perfect spot in our living room to enjoy it!


One more photo of beautiful paintings!


I’m joining Katherine’s Corner for Favorite Things

and Jann for Share Your Cup !

Have you been to an Art Show lately?

It’s inspiring, isn’t it?

That looks like fun Diane. The painting you bought is beautiful! How neat that you got to meet the artist.

We haven't been to any art shows. I'll have to be on the look out.

Finding Pam said...

Looks like you had a lot of fun. I like your painting. Do you paint?

Art From The heart said...

Love the painting you bought. Looks like a delightful show!

Vintage Gal said...

I haven't been to an art show in ages. Looks like you had fun!

Leave It To Davis said...

First, you look so young...and you are so pretty! Love your picture...and those are just wonderful the one of the old woman looking down at her dog, and he looking up at her. I have never been to anything but an arts and craft show. I love going to them, but they always come on the weekend, and I work every weekend now (and have for 12 years), so it's been a long time since I have been to one of them!

Brenda said...

You are so lucky Diane to have such a huge show to attend. The talent is AMAZING. I love how Marilyn captured the fish in such a mystical way. Thank you so much for taking us along. :)

What a fun outing. Such an amazing group of talented artists.

Curtains in My Tree said...

Surely there is an art show in this University town I could attend?

I was always out at auctions looking for vintage treasures, never great art paintings

Your painting does fit right in your spot reserved for it

Thanks for showing it

I love art shows, craft fairs, anything like that! I'll be glad when it warms up, we enjoy going down to Fairhope,Al and walking around at their arts and crafts fair. It looks like y'all had a wonderful time!

That new painting is a beauty! And it goes perfect with your seaside collection. Art shows are fun to attend, that's for sure.

I do love your new painting. It fits perfect in that spot you have it. Have a wonderful weekend!

Vee said...

That painting is really special and looks perfect in its new location at your house. Love the colors of it. My daughter paints, which awes me. She didn't get it from my side of the family, but her father and his sister and her paternal grandmother all painted. I haven't been to an art show in a while (except for hospital corridors).

Decor To Adore said...

Wow! What an impressive collections of talented people. Love your new artwork!

Hello Diane,
While I was on my sweet friend, Marcia's blog, I noticed your comment talking about sugar-free candy. I used to eat sugar-free candy until I read a post that my friend at "Chatelet" wrote about Aspartame, which I think is something that sugar-free sweeteners have in common. It was very interesting to me, and you might want to read it yourself. Her blog is on my profile page, "Chatelet" and it is a recent post on Feb. 21. I just thought I'd pass the info. on to you. I love chocolate, and I can't eat sugar, like you, so I would often try sugar-free things. But after reading her post, I no longer do. Hope this helps you. I'm glad I came across you on Marcia's blog. She's such a gem. Have a nice day, Diane.

I love the painting you bought! It looks great in your home. It's been years since I went to an Art show but I always enjoy them so much!

Custom Comforts said...

Beautiful painting. You must be a very proud owner.
What struck me most though is you all are wearing capris, shorts and sandals already. I am so jealous. We're still wearing boots and slopping around in slushy snow :(

Diane, this looks like so much fun. I can only imagine how much I'd enjoy browsing through such a place with you, my friend. Love the beautiful painting you purchased and how pretty it looks with those gorgeous shells of yours.

Don't tell me you were at Stone Creek...or maybe OTOW?

I enjoy these shows. We usually go to the Arts and Crafts thing in the fall.

"Denizens of the Deep" is a beautiful work!

I like your choice of a painting to buy, and art shows are great fun, I agree. All that talent in one convenient place.

Mrs. Sarah Coller said...

Oh how fun!! The Vermeer reproduction, Girl With a Pearl Earring, is my most favorite painting ever. What a great time you had---I'd love to attend an art show! This week's Homemaking Linkup is up and I would love to have you join, if you haven’t already.

What a lovely art show. NONE around here this time of year. I really love the paint you chose, it looks very dreamy under the sea. Your SEA arranged under the painting is beautiful. Hugs Judy
