The Scoop on Paul's Show...




Hello again....I have been slow to update you on my latest adventure as I have been down for the count with a bad cold and cough...Ugh...This is Paul Gordon, artist extraordinaire...in front of his charming home in Martinsburg, WV. When I say charming...I mean very charming.  He was a gracious host to all of the gang that gathered to celebrate the holiday.

Here is Paul in his studio standing proudly in front of his artwork. I sadly neglected to take a snapshot of his picture window with a magical snowman. Oops! You would have enjoyed it. People came from near and far for the opportunity to view and purchase his works of art.


What is Christmas with out a warm and fuzzy teddy bear...fortunately for us Pat Murphy brought some charmers. As usual. We all need a teddy bear or two to remind us of the child that lies within us all. You might want to put a MurphyBear on your wish list.


Leslie McCabe pulled the wool over our eyes by hooking some beautiful pillows and Christmas stockings. Leslie paints with colorful wool...she must find the wool from rainbow sheep. You just want to touch them to feel their warmth.


Meet  Allen Cunningham...yet another famous artist. His dolls are famous and his holiday figures are a sight to behold. He is as charming as his artwork...plus he looks just like Johnny Depp. As you can tell...I think the world of Allen.


This is Dara DiMagno ...a very talented jewelry artist. She makes one-of-a-kind pendants with vintage photographs and findings. Once you start to look at them...you will become enchanted by her wit and talent. You can't help but smile and giggle when you start to explore her work.


 And here is Stacy Bear a multi-talented artist. She is a painter and a soft sculpture artist. Whatever she makes is so full of whimsy. She has been featured in many magazines over the years...so she may be familiar to you.

And finishing up as we went around the room is Deborah Hartwig...a charming and colorful soft sculpture artist who makes the most clever pin cushions out of velveteen and creates the most imaginative little works of art.


The next day we went antique shopping in Hagerstown. Here is Jack, Allen, Fred, Nancy, Dominick, Pat, Leslie and Paul. We were good little Americans...as we stimulated the economy that day.

I know that I prattled on and on, but it is hard to compact a magical weekend into a few paragraphs. The word "talented" was bandied about...but it was true. Paul's studio was filled beautiful artwork and the nicest of people. Truly. A wonderful way to let the holidays begin. So Merci Beaucoup to all of you who "decked the halls" with all of us.


Nancy Michler, Pat Murphy, Leslie McCabe and me after a tasty breakfast. When in West Virginia...enjoy the biscuits...it is an unspoken rule.

Have "comfort and joy" fun,

Jody
