Mark Strauss - Artist and Writer




Meet the artist Mark Strauss.

On our vacation last fall we visited Mark Strauss' wonderful gallery in Edinburg, Virginia. Housed in a beautiful old building, the gallery features all of Mark Strauss' prints and many of his paintings. And to our surprise, the person at the desk was the artist himself. He is a remarkable person and his paintings are fascinating. We enjoyed talking to him very much. 

His paintings and prints are owned by patrons throughout the United States and the world.
If you are ever in the area please visit his gallery. It is located in the center of Edinburg at 108 North Main Street on State Route 11 and take a tour conducted by the artist. You also might want to check out his website. The gallery is open from Wednesday through Sunday.

Thank you for your hospitality Mr. Strauss. It was such an honor to meet you.

Run Gracie, run...


Miss Gracie has lots of energy, loves to run, and chase her red ball.

It is finally getting warmer here and the snow has started to melt. The cranes are coming back and flying north and that means spring, soon...At least I can get out again and go for a walk with Gracie.

My favorite two Etsy stores right now are 2ndlife and annavee. Beautiful photography, handcrafts, and hand knitted items from Finland. Check it out.

Having another nephew and his girlfriend come from Germany at the end of this month for a one week visit. I haven't seen him in seven years. I am so excited...

P.S.: There seems to be a problem with the video. You might want to view it on my Flickr Photostream to the right or Facebook.

Blizzard Dog





Had to get the heavy duty fleece coat out for Gracie. She is standing on top of 10 inches of frozen sleet and ice, try to shovel that, it is nearly impossible...That blizzard just about closed the whole city...so I was home for two days and it was nice...got caught up on many things...I hope this is the last snow storm of the season. I want spring!...

I am off to the airport in Indianapolis tomorrow to pick up my nephew. I haven't seen him in five years, way too long....
* * *
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
