Linda is back from her trip to Seattle visiting her friend Denise. She has been down with a cold since she got back, but hopes to be back painting in a couple of days. I survived my 5 days home alone on my usual bachelor diet of popcorn and peanut butter. The dog spent the whole time keeping vigil at the front door waiting for Linda to come home. The American Academy of Equine Art show is up on their website; they haven't announced the awards yet. Linda's painting is near the end in alphabetical order. Also look at Lynne Lockhart's painting it is real good. Lynne is in Main Street Gallery with Linda.

We're back from our trip to Bethlehem, PA, it was a great trip. It rained two days so we worked on still life paintings indoors, but did get in one plein air landscape day. Thanks to Pat and Sandy for taking such good care of us. Great food, good wine, and painting what else could you ask for in a trip. I will try to post pictures of our paintings when they are digital.

Linda is working hard to get paintings ready for two national juried shows; One for the American Academy of Equine Art in Lexington, KY, and the second for the American Artists Professional League at the Salmagundi Club New York, NY.

She just finished up a successful show with Oatlands Plantation in Leesburg, VA. and has several paintings in the Aldie Mill show in Aldie, VA.
