My peeps and I had a great time exhibiting at the Sidewalk Art Stroll last Thursday evening. The weather was still a little warmer than I would have liked, but a nice breeze was blowing and the rain held off. Lots of people came by to see our work and made nice comments. The Stroll brings in a variety of artists. The Huntsville area has a lot of great talent! Competition? No, we are all related in the 'hood of art, and what a great family!

|Bells and Whistles|
I painted Bells and Whistles when I was working on the set for the Huntsville Community Chorus melodrama Belles and Whistles. During dress rehearsal, I realized that the production really needed a train picture somewhere on the set. The play is set in a depot and has a great sound effect of a train pulling into the station, then leaving. The next day, I found several black and white pictures of 1930ish trains, and created the painting from them. I think it's one of my best works. My 7-year-old grandson likes it, too. One day he asked me, "NayNay, when you die, can I have the train picture?" LOL! I told him that he didn't have to wait for me to die, he could hang it in his room. So guess where it will be exhibited next?!?!? ;-)
