Notes from the Deckle Edge
Took my painting "Chance of Snow" down to the Camden Daffodil Festival last Wednesday. Beautiful weather. Long trip though, five hours. Did get to have a short tour of the Postmaster's Grill which was enjoyable. It is a unique building. My hats off to whomever was responsible for restoration instead of demolition. Judging is tomorrow. I hope that all who see it, enjoy it. I tried to keep it light and fresh without too much detail. Used a combination of negative with some positive additions. I only used three colors: yellow, green, cobalt teal blue. The combination of colors is quite pleasing. Again, the weather was spectacular. I believe I heard that it broke some records. The redbuds were completely bloomed, as were the saucer magnolias. Okay, that is early. Daffodils and hyacinths were blooming as well. Just couldn't have picked a better time to travel. Family is well, and got to see my parents and my niece. No awards at AWS, but no matter, quite an honor to be chosen for the exhibition.
On a sad note, my Aunt Glenna passed away last night. I will miss her very much. Her laugh comes to mind first. She was an avid quilter and was quite adept at all the needle arts. Godspeed to your next adventure Aunt Glenna, you will be well remembered and missed.
