My Very Own Terry Maxwell Watercolor

The weekend’s art activites exceeded my expectations in many ways.
Friday was a total bust – I came home from work so worn out, I feel asleep 7pm.
Brandon and I were up bright and early on Saturday morning, on our way to the Toad Hollow Art Show with his parents. The show was quaint, more like an intimate artist’s village, with artwork of all varieties. Pottery, fiber arts, photography, drawing, metalwork, jewelry – only 13 artists, but rich with diversity.
Brandon and I walked away as the proud owners of “Evening Silence”, an original watercolor by Terry Maxwell. We’ve been talking about buying one of Terry’s peices for at least the last 4 years. Brandon’s parents have a couple of Terry’s paintings, and we’ve always been huge fans. We will be taking the piece to J & Co. Frameshop to have UV-protective glass installed to help retain the brilliant colors of the landscape. I’ll take a photo while the glass is off (to prevent glare) and post it on here soon.
I also heard great things about the Mulvane Mountain/Plains Art Fair at Washburn University. Linda Park, a co-worker of mine, was showing Jewerly and Mobiles with her friend Debbie McRae, and she said that the crowd was constant and the sales were good. I was planning to go – but considering my purchase on Saturday, I really couldn’t afford it.
