The Nokotas and their people enjoyed a great day at Fair Hill yesterday. We had great weather in which to enjoy the camaraderie (despite the competition!).

I am looking forward to sharing more Nokota events with the Nokota crew - next time with Carmelita in hand!

My fire had gone out. All summer I wondered, "When will I paint again? Where is my creative spark?"

The answer has arrived, "Now! Here!"

I am bursting with inspiration, show plans, and ideas. I want to give you a forecast. But, just like the meteorologists, I might be getting ahead of myself.

Open House will be October 4th and 5th. I will have framed art, unframed art, prints, cards, painted furniture, my work, my Dad's work, my sister Amy's jewelry, and perhaps some of my sister Beth's home decor.

Fair Hill International is October 16th-20th

Aiken Museum of Racing Solo Show, February 2009

Fair Hill, Ocotober 2009: I am working on an idea to have a show at Fair Hill featuring all Fair Hill inspired originals to benefit FHNRMA.

Furniture: (I will post pictures of before and afters)
entry table
poster bed bench
blue box
rustic shelves
blanket chest

In addition to my current prints, I hope to have a "Fair Hill Map" print available next month.
I am working on the original. It is a birds eye view if Fair Hill NRMA with painted vingiettes of events, horses, archietecture, and all things Fair Hill.

Well, now that I have put it all in writing I'd better get to work.
