Art Show at Whitehern

There were many talented young high school students who exhibited their work on this sunny, warm Sunday afternoon.

I was very pleased to see this wide array of subjects that they portrayed in paint.

I was also extremely pleased to see that people of different religions participated and there seemed to be a real spirit of fellowship between the different artists.

The fabulous young musician - multi talented

I think I heard his name was Ryan
His music was amazing.  This young man will go far with his music!  It was most pleasant.

The fellow in the orange shirt was the judge - he is a visual artist

It was difficult to find shade in the garden and the sun was extremely hot.  I sat with a lady whom I had seen at the weekly concerts last summer.  We introduced ourselves.  A friend of hers came over and I recognized her face but didn't remember where I knew her from.  It was June who worked with me at the Catholic Family Services.  She worked at outreach services and I worked as a senior peer councillor.

She told me that two of the ladies who left there have started their own moving company and are specializing in moving seniors.  I know both of these ladies and if I ever move, I will certainly contact them as I like both of them.  I worked with them for over four years and we never had a cross word!

What a small world it is. 

My friend Jennifer came as well so we found a little patch of shade and sat together.  Had a lovely time and it was well worth going to see.

Congratulations to Liz Corey who organized this event.

Good Morning David,

Thank you very much for reading my blog. It is a mixture of things which I think people may find interesting. I am a writer and my interests lie in that direction but I also appreciate other arts as well.

Once again, thanks for reading and for leaving a comment.
