Today I will share the front of my Valentine Card that Prince gave me and some of the art work of a few of the Artist that were in the Art Event at David Lipscomb Campus School.
"Commerce" a 24x36 oil on canvas by Pete Sullivan. I loved his technique. You can see more at

"A Symphony of Red Trees" by Leatha Frost. This painting was not on display but other red trees were. She was a petite woman and she told Knoxie and I that this was the painting that was chosen for her being the featured artist at another show.

This was the business card given out by Peaches daughter Shannon Haas. Her texture in her paintings are wonderfully shown off by the colors she chooses to paint.

This was a very large painting on display by David Arms. I thought all the info was on the back of the postcard I picked up but alas not. I loved the lace on the table cloth. To see more of his paintings check out

"A Peaceful Studio" Acrylic 48"X36" by Penny Arnold aka "Peaches" in past post. This was not on display but the ones my friend did have on display were gorgeous. Prince kept looking at one of her Angels. She is most noted for her "clown" paintings.
The art event had forty-two artist on display. I wish I had taken my camera but did not so I have two others which I wish to exclaims as some of my favorites. Kathy Chester's husband worked with Prince at one time and Kathy is an accomplished painter and teacher. Her "Lady in Winter" was absolutely the one I would have brought home if the coins were available.(Still putting Puppy through college) I did not see any cards and I have no idea if she has a website but will have Prince find out and let you know.
The most unique and cheerful also did not have any postcard as give mes but his style was delightful. His name was David Nichols and he had pencil Chefs on gallery canvases. I also liked the two roosters with blue tail feathers he had done. All of his would be great in modern day kitchens to make one smile.
The kitty justice would be to remember my camera at all times.

Lady Di,

The front of the Valentine is beautiful. Your Prince has very good taste.

Loved the paintings. My favorite would be the last one - the peaceful studio and my second favorite the doves.

Take care and enjoy your week.

What a beautiful Valentine from 'the love of your life'.

I love the paintings--specially the birds on the table and the one below it. Well they all are good and the reds are vibrant.

I am working hard at being back but everything is still very slow. MB

Dear Dianne ~~ I just love the beautiful Valentine card that Prince gave you. And I enjoyed the paintings also, I think the doves on the table were my favorite. Thanks for your comments about Scotty and Nicole - they certainly look nice together. I liked theSenior Moment best myself. Take care, my friend.
Love and Peace to you also, Merle.

Penny does wonderful work and I am not just saying that because she is my friend.

It has been a busy week. Peace

Seems like everyone liked the birds by David. I hope you got to go to his website and check out all his paintings.

I am glad you enjoyed the paintings. I also hope you went to the website for David and saw his other work. Peace
