My husband isn’t much for swimming but I got him a new bathing suit and slides and he is willing to get in the water later! My son loves to swim and he is ready to go!
Near Pandapas is another beautiful section of the woods near the pond in Gile County. When I was a kid I spent much of my time in the woods or at creeks and I especially liked to pull on vines like the one you see here.
This is a home in Christiansburg that caught my eye every time I passed it so I decided to make a painting of it and the field next to it.
I am amazed at the number of ghost stories in The New River Valley. I am a very skeptical person and don’t believe in mediums or psychics but I do enjoy reading about these various sitings and what people report to be supernatural events.
Here is another Radford City one.
In the Online Ghosts of America a Radford resident reported seeing a man walk out to the middle of the lower section of the New River Trestle in Radford but before he hit the water, he vanished. There was no splash and the viewer thought it was a trick of the eye but he has found others that saw the same thing. He would like to know if there was a suicide off this bridge that is being repeated in spirit form.
I have been painting in oils since I was twelve and I couldn’t imagine my world without paint. Winston Churchill once said something similar about how he couldn’t imagine a world without paint.
Even though I live to paint, I haven’t met the medium that I don’t like and my portfolio has a wide selection of different ones.
A year ago I decided to add photography to my lost list of mediums and my husband has assisted me in photographing wild flowers in the local parks.
Saturday I photographed the first floral signs of Spring at Wildwood Park. While we were there, a friend showed up and found a ring neck snake. I have always been fascinated by snakes so I took some pictures for my blog. Here is the best one.
