On the Prowl

This was the weekend for the Annual Art Prowl held in our little burg. The Art Prowl started in 1999 with artist studio tours and has grown some in subsequent years. It is one thing to go to an art gallery and quite another thing to see the artist in their element. The Prowl has also incorporated some artist demonstrations. This year there was a weaving demonstration, and today we had the chance to see a demonstration of monotone painting. It wasn't quite what I expected, but interesting just the same.

Also on tap this weekend was the Mistletoe Market, which sponsors area businesses. Also very cool and you always meet such nice people there. It gives you the chance to see their merchandise without having to go to their business. One of the new businesses is Delmonaco Winery which opens next weekend. It is a big deal in a county in which you can't buy package liquor. You can buy beer, but wine and liquor have so far not been available in this county. So this will be a real treat and shorten our trip for wine by 10-30 miles.

One of the best things about this weekend's activities - it inspired us to start hanging pictures we brought from Michigan.

I feel so full of culture now!
