The summer months have flown by – first the BIG move and then the work began to get this fabulous property back up and running to its potential.  We have scrubbed, painted, trimmed, repaired, replaced, furnished – you name it; all has been done to have the Shenandoah Art Destination up and running.  The potential of this place is over and beyond what we had even imagined.  The peace and the quiet combined with the beautiful nature is definitely the perfect setting to get those creative ideas flowing.  From one season to the next the surrounding nature shows yet a different dimension to beauty.  We have seen it in full summer – leaves thick and green; to the turning of the colors and the dropping of the leaves alongside the creek; to the barrenness of the trees which shows the vulnerable side of the beauty.  Which do you want to paint???  I agree, hard to chose.  But, one thing is for sure, no matter what time of year, there will always be something to inspire you.  So stay tuned – we are working on our schedule for 2013 – to be posted soon.  You will definitely want to get a spot reserved.
