Crinson and golden leaves in the woodlands as Chipmuunks gather the Fall harvest!

Just thought you'd like to see something seasonal here...
Today I am working on finishing up some small pieces for the October final M.D. Garage Show of this year. Perhaps I will post a few later.
MD Garage is an old garage located on Boston Mills Rd. just off Riverview Rd near Boston Mills Ski Lodge north of Peninsula, OH. Its located next to the Towpath as it meaners along the Cuyahoga River through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
The Park service gave our Art group use of this building and made us panels to display our work. So, next time you are riding your bike, or hiking along the Towpath between Cleveland and Akron, do stop by the MD Garage there in Boston, grab a bite to eat and drink across street from us at the "Trail Mix" Country Store, and come see our Art Displays. They are manned by the artists, and open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Many of us bring along whatever we are currently working on and paint during our time minding the Gallery.

BTW, re: MD Garage artists ... we are called "The Crooked River Gang" after the translation of the Indian title of the river, "Cyuahoga". I am part of the original group of Artists started up by Don Getz (fellow artist) who lives in the Park. Knowing we love to paint in the Park, Don would get a bunch of us together with him during Peninsula events and we'd set up our gear and work wherever we wanted along the Towpath. Don encouraged us to stop often to talk with interested hiking visitors about our love of working in the Valley. The National Park enjoyed having us around, so, thats why they offered to bring us on board with their other activities and gave us the use of the Garage on the weekends, May through October each year with show themes that vary each month. Our displays have really grown and now feature many other artists also from the area who love working in the Park.
Come see us some weekend in October!
