November Arts Guild Show

The artists of the Emy Frentz Arts Guild have a show every November. We had our opening reception on Thursday night. What a great turnout. The place was crowded with friends and family. Our theme was "A Spicy Concoction"  so we served a really good taco bar with lots of spicy side dishes... and wine of course.
I decided to use my chrome painting series for this show. They make a nice group. Next month after the show comes down they will be in a new show at Unique speicalty auto store here in Mankato. They specialize in selling really great old cars. Let's keep our fingers crossed that someone will want to buy one of these for a Christmas present for someone who loves those old cars.

Here we are, Jen, Antje, Margie, Joellen, Tim, Jane and Eileen. A really great group of artists who work together in a really great organization -- The Emy Frentz Arts Guild.
New photos coming soon of the works in the show.

Fall fell into winter

Here we were hoping for a really great Thanksgiving when we could take a long walk in mild weather after the big dinner. We probably will not be doing that long walk this year. This is what we woke up to this morning.
We have never seen the branches of this tree sag to the ground like this. When we shoveled we measured 15inches of the wet stuff in our driveway. It has settled considerably. And the trees have bounced back up except for the branches that broke under the heavy snow. We could hear the branches cracking and falling while we were out shoveling. Heres hoping most if not all of this will melt sometime soon.
