March whizzed by and April’s almost gone. Somebody said “time flies when you’re having fun” – or when you’re trying to complete paintings for four fundraisers, which took up a lot of my time in March and April. I probably bit off more than I can chew. But, at last, they’re finished and drying.
In early April I attended the annual Highland County 4-H fundraiser. Unfortunately there were more 4-H’ers than adults. And, sadly, many of the barn owners, whose barns I painted, didn’t come. Maybe they had other plans. Or maybe the beautiful spring day lured them elsewhere. At last year’s event, the weather was cold and windy, perhaps forcing folks to stay indoors. Anyway, the overall results of the auction were much lower than last year’s, though my paintings again raised about a third of the total. So, for that I’m happy. Just sad that the fundraiser didn’t break last year’s great results.
On to May. Two of my paintings have been selected by a jury - out of 300 submissions - to be in the annual Evendale Fine Arts Exhibit, beginning with a reception on Friday, May 8. One of the paintings will be for sale but the other one, "Ghosts," will be offered in the Heritage Village fundraiser on May 13. I will be at the reception on Friday. Refreshments will be served and there will be music. There is no entrance fee for this event. Click here for information.
The next week, please make plans to come to an Art Auction for the Heritage Village Museum in Sharon Woods. On Saturday, May 13, fourteen of my paintings of these old Cincinnati area buildings, which have been transplanted and restored in this unique, wooded setting, will be offered in a live auction. The village and museum are operated by a foundation which is not part of Sharon Woods or Hamilton County and relies on donations and grants for its viability. You can view these paintings under Other States on this website. This event promises to be outstanding: a wine and cheese party with a twilight tour of the old homes in the village. Saturday evening.
