Well, I'll skip the apologies and guilt for not blogging and jump right into the good stuff. Here is one of my favorite projects I have been working on lately. A painted rain barrel for Sustainable Berea's rain barrel festival:
Katie and I were inspired by Pennsylvania German Frakturs, the foliage in the paintings of Rousseau, and other things that delight us.
Our barrel was well recieved in the live auction, and was a great reason to have to hang out at this great community building event. A couple other barrels that caught my eye:
Painted by Beth, a local painter who's work I love and whose last name I can never remember.
Isn't this guy great? Painted by Heather Richardson.
What a fun day of building a more sustainable community, educating us all about water issues, and getting folks to buy local art pulled off in a remarkable way by Sustainable Berea. Hooray!
