Multiple shows going on

I have been blessed lately with my works. I currently and/or soon will have nearly 60 of my paintings and photos on display. My plein air works from my recent camping trip are on display for about 1 1/2 weeks at Cultivate Co-working in Murfreesboro. (If you don't know what co-working is, stop by and ask Gretchen)

In addition, I always try to have some works up at the Murfreesboro Art League. I don't have a photo of the current group up there, however. I have several of my up-cycled works at a boutique in Berry Hill at the Smart Supplies location. 
I also have some of my florals and abstracts (non-representational) at Springhouse Worship and Arts Center in Smyrna. They have amazing plays there, like the upcoming "Oklahoma." I have season tickets because the acting is so good!

Plein air camping trip this summer

I have been so busy this summer. I went on a 3 1/2 week camping and painting trip from TN, through LA and TX and on to CA. I wanted to prove that a 50something woman could do something like that alone. It was a wonderful experience, and I got many beautiful photos and paintings out of it. Here are some of the paintings from that trip. I have since touched up the skies and parts that were messed up while travelling, but this gives the general idea.
