I know I've posted about Bucyrus, Ohio before, but today we took our dear friends Neal and Judy to see the murals painted by Eric Grohe. They (the murals, not Neal and Judy!) are a site to see. Visit his website to learn more about him and to see murals he has painted throughout the United States. The size and detail is beyond comprehension. You can see more photos and detail in my February 7, 2010 post. (Sorry, I don't know how to link to an old post.)
It's hard to believe this is painted on a building and is one dimensional. (Sorry I cut the top of the building off. When the sun is shining, I can't see what I'm taking with a digital camera.)
Neal is a very talented local artist, specializing in pen and ink drawings. I think he has drawn every local landmark in our county. Here is my house portrait that Fritz commissioned Neal to draw a few Christmases ago. (That is glare from the flash over the garage.)
Here is the black and white version. This photo is taken from a note card.
Judy was so sweet. She gave me these three old bobbins that she's had for at least 40 years. (She must have gotten them when she was 10...lol!) They have the most wonderful patina and I will treasure them always. Thanks, Judy :)
I can't believe another weekend is over and it's back to work tomorrow. I'll have a short week, though. I'm taking Friday off work and heading to the rug show at Sauder Village. I will take LOTS of pictures to share.
Pug hugs :)
