The Artists Are In Town!!

It’s that time of year again when we are enjoying the fall colors and with it we celebrate the Plein Air Festival. Once again many of my artist friends are in town to paint on location in Sedona, Jerome and the Alcantara Winery in Cottonwood. Since I’m not allowed to drink I don’t really know what a winery is but I assume it has something to do with not complaining since my mom sometimes tells me “No Whining!!”

We look forward to this time when the artists are around. They sure are a hard working bunch! Up at dawn, paint all day and to bed late in the night. All the while they are expected to paint these wonderful masterpieces for the show. Seems like a lot of work to me and somehow they do it. Me, I prefer to sleep in, breakfast, nap, lunch, nap, walk around, then the big afternoon nap, walk again, dinner, and to bed by 7. Ahhhhhh, my kind of day.

Anyway, we hope you all can come out this week to watch the artists work and then check out the show in the barn. The big shin-dig is Friday night when the paintings are done and people are buying them like crazy. The wine is flowing (there’s that word again) and me, I’m home asleep in my own cozy bed….
