What's Happening
Where We Will Be

We have enjoyed and taken full advantage of the beautiful, cool summer weather we have had this year! Maybe it's motivational weather but we have been busy.  
For us, the arrival of  Fall  means several things: Our after school art classes crank up, our fall show schedule revs into high speed and Christmas is suddenly on our doorstep!  Add to that a travel schedule that takes us all over NC and surrounding states.
We enjoyed our annual  Blowing Rock horse show (SO nice there) and are following up with all the people who asked us to coordinate ideas, photos and trips to paint.  Steve's “FARM TOUR” started earlier this summer and he has been busy! He has been setting up dates and schedules to travel to  locations to paint the scene of your choice (house, barn, dogs, views, etc.) He recently traveled to SC and painted  Kiawah River Farm  and his collector was delighted. Schedule your painting tour with him by calling him at 919-880-2858.

For portrait sessions of your child or horse, give me a call (Theresa) at 919-880-2858.
We will be somewhat anchored October and November at the Hunt Horse Complex in Raleigh with the fall series of shows ranging from the Hunter Jumper shows that just ended, through the Duke and Rush shows in November. So we will be found slumped in the art booth at some point during those months and so easy to find.

Photo: Paint a Pony results! One of 3 collage photos of the cute results from participants at this years NCHJA at event :-) Thought I could post all the photos but guess not-will get some more up-

What Else?


We sponsored a “Paint your Pony” art class at the NCHJA show and had a bunch of kids (and a few adults) pop in for the free event. Donations were accepted for Danny and Ron's Rescue and we raised $60.00 for them! See a few of the results of what the NCHJA youngsters did!
