Nashville, Tennessee

Happy November!

We have been fortunate to do some traveling off and on since September and with each trip, whether short or long, I find myself that much farther behind on many things, including blogging.  However, most nights when I sit down to relax I thankfully have had time to catch up with all the talented, inspiring bloggers I follow (better than a magazine or being subjected to too many political commercials!!).

Luckily, during our travels, I was able to make a lot of paintings in my sketchbook.  One thing about keeping a sketchbook is that although the pictures are not “masterpieces,” they are PRICELESS in making memories and become a fun travel diary which takes me back to the places where I so carefully observed the subjects.

In September, a total of 20 of us spent a long weekend Nashville, Tennessee, and we stayed in a terrific three-story mansion on Music Row.  We enjoyed visiting the honky-tonks on Broadway, the Grand Ole Opry, Studio B, and the Country Music Hall of Fame.  This painting features some things I saw at the CMHF.  Buck Owen’s all-American guitar takes us way back to the Bakersfield Sound, I simply adore Randy Travis and evidently fringe is currently in style again J, and Brad Paisley’s iconic hat has a presence of its own!  The white hat on white paper was a bit of a challenge but I am improving a bit at negative painting.

I have lots to share this month and also look forward to playing along with the #WorldWatercolorGroup prompts for November.  It feels good to be back!
