Knock Knock Turkey Time

I have recently purchased tickets to come back to Wisconsin just before Christmas. Southwest Airlines seems to have the best deal at 69 dollars per flight from Logan airport in Boston to Midway airport in Chicago, and back again. 4 people round trip with taxes for somewhere near 550 dollars. I will be renting a car with National and selecting from the Emerald Isle. Then the 3-4 hour drive to Mineral Point, WI. This is not Door County.

However, I think its crazy to be the Door County Artist who doesn't expand his or her horizons. Staying in Door County exclusively would limit my wild curiosity. Not that you can't live and stay in Door County forever and be awesome. I just need to excuse the fact that I am not there. Nor, will I be traveling to Door County during this trip back to the cheese State.

Hey, there is a pretty good art scene in Mineral Point. You can hardly listen to Wisconsin Public Radio without hearing a "commer
cial" about Mineral Point. I will be heade…

Our Visit with Connie Glowacki

We biked away from Julie's Park Cafe with our bellies full. I told Ellie we should do some window shopping and she agreed. We headed up the hill to the Top of the Hill Shops. We walked around until we came to Connie Glowacki's Gallery. Connie is a lovely woman with a lot of great watercolor paintings. We walked through the door with our twin three-year-olds, and Connie was very warm and welcoming. Connie walked to the back and brought out a plastic tote of stuffed animals for the boys to play with. Ellie and Connie talked about art and we must have spent a good half an hour in her shop. While Connie and Ellie were talking I looked through Connie's prints and painting. I ended up purchasing a puzzle. The puzzle is a black and white rendering of a old barn with a old truck from the thirties or forties parked alongside it. It is a 308 piece puzzle. It should be fun to put together, and then we can hang it on the wall when we are done. It only cost a bit over 12 dollars.

Connie has a lot of great work especially paintings with vivid color. Stop by her gallery at:
