This past weekend marked the end of this year’s High Road Art Tour (see previous post The High Road Art Tour!). Anna and I figure we had around 1000 people through the gallery over the two weekends of the Tour. And not just “people”, wonderful people—people who “got” what we are doing—people who appreciated our art. These folks energized and inspired us, as we hope we did them.
We started that first day of the Tour in heady anticipation. Arlene came with bags of her family’s chili to sell. Her dad grows it, roasts it, removes the stems and seeds and grinds it. Terrific stuff!
Along with the many two-footed visitors, we were also graced by the presence of many four-footed friends (we are an animal-friendly gallery, of course).
Among them was a very special visitor: Peggy and Don Baucom’s beautiful Beau (he brought Don and Peggy along with him). Beau was a little puppy who nearly died my first spring here (see previous post Rescued Puppy, Beau, Lands the Good Life). You’d never guess it from the looks of him now!
There was so much great discussion and sharing of art. I wish you all could have been here. But you know me, I had you all in mind during the whole Tour and I snapped these pics so you could share a bit of the experience. Come along with me, will you?
Love to you all,
