Hello again...

It's Tuesday morning here in North Texas.  A little cool, but not bad.  Supposed to up in the 50s and 60s today so I'll take that happily.. ;)  

To catch up a little bit on the news... The Ingram Art Show in Tupelo, OK  was a big success.  I was really surprised by the turnout.  Here are a few.. a very few... of the photos I took.  It would take a book to show all the wonderful talent that was there.

Left and right in the photo are my Aunt Sue and Aunt Betty.  In the center is my dad's first cousin Lorene.  What a fun time!  Aunt Sue is a professional long arm quilter and does beautiful work.. and as you can see, she also crochets and makes adorable baby things.   Aunt Betty does all the lovely paintings in the background.   Like this one:

I love this watercolor.  It makes me feel that peace inside that only the earth, trees and birds can give.  The Texas bricks are collector's items that she paints.  The Texas bricks are no longer made so the ones that are in existence now are the only ones that will ever be...

This is my Uncle Bobby.  He and Aunt Betty are twins.  And they both have enough talent individually for 4 people, so together they could open their own shop.. ;)   Bobby is a "whittler"... All of the planes, guns  jewelry boxes, portraits that you see here were whittled by Uncle Bobby.  Most are to scale.  He has been written about in newspapers and journals.  He is amazing.  And I'm not prejudiced... ;)

This is my cousin Deanna.  Not only does she play the violin and guitar, she is also an artist. 

It was a wonderful day.  There is so much more I could say and show, but then this post would take a week to load.. ;)  More later.. ;)

Have a good day..
