I received an email on Wednesday that my favorite artist (thanks to my mom), Warren Kimble, would be opening his studio to the public today for demonstrations! It's so funny because I never knew his studio was only one street over from where my family lived in Brandon! I always knew he lived there, but really had no idea where all of his art came to life!!! So, I conned Brad into making the trip up north for this once in a lifetime opportunity.
I was sad to see Warren Kimble wasn't demonsrating his traditional folk art, but rather a printing effect. Don't get me wrong, what he did was beautiful, but not the Warren Kimble artwork I know & love!! It was still a pleasure and he was such a funny guy!
I even convinced him to capture a quick picture with me!! :-) I also was able to get the truth out of him about the infamous "Basset Hound" picture that my mom insisted, for years, was a painting of our dog, Sheldon... Warren Kimble stated that it was just a generic dog... I'm going to pretend he lied to me.
Brad and I packed our snowshoes in hopes to get a hike in today, but at under 20 degrees, we decided not to. I still took him up to Goshen in hopes to see a moose, but no such luck. :-(
It's ok... It was a beautiful day & fun to see the old stomping grounds.
