Pear 3

Pear 3

Yesterday I painted in beautiful Historic Bethlehem, PA. If you have never been here and enjoy historic towns, you'll want to put this on your list of destinations. Bethlehem beckons travelers to experience the warmth and hospitality of this delightful community.

On Christmas Eve of that first year, 1741, the Moravians' patron, Count Nicholas Ludwig von Zinzendorf of Saxony, Germany, visited the new settlement. In their two-room log home that housed both man and beast, the Count christened the community "Bethlehem".

Today Bethlehem is a mix of the historic and the exciting present. There are two 'downtowns' and lots to do! The several annual festivals include 'Musikfest', 'Celtic Classic' and 'Christkindlmarkt'. Also, Bethlehem will host the exciting opening of 'Sands Casino'. We're predicting over 5 million guests flowing into South Bethlehem annually ... and I'm hoping many of them will visit my Banana Factory studio. So ... if you're in the neighborhood, stop in the Banana Factory, 2nd floor, studio 243. Why not on May 1st which is the next First Friday - and the last First Friday before my France departure. Meet the wonderful sculptor 'Virginia Abbott' who will be utilizing my studio while I'm painting and swimming and enjoying myself in the Riviera.

Trés Incroyable !!
