Ready For The Weekend?

Tomorrow (Saturday) is the start of the Simon Kenton Festival in Old Washington. 


I had my camera along while walking around Old Washington.



It’s a great time to visit the charming frontier village. 



I had a chance to take a few pictures of some re-enactors while they had dinner by the wood fire. 


They brought a team of Oxen along with a wagon.


I’ll be having an open house Saturday and Sunday from 1-6pm.  Stop by!  I’ll be happy to see you, and you’ll be glad you came!

Hi Folks,

I just wanted to let you know that I am making some changes to my website.

Change can be good and bad.

I’m excited about a new approach to my work.  I am going to put more energy into my online presence, and treat it like an art project.

I appreciate everyone’s support so far, and
I would hate to lose touch with you because of a technical bug
so be aware I am making changes (and i can be accident prone!)

If you use a feed reader to keep up to date with my blog, you need to change the feed to:
otherwise you will only get an update twice a month.

If you receive these messages by email, you do not need to do anything.  You SHOULD continue to get about 2 messages every month.
If for some reason you start getting lots of email messages in your box (of if my messages stop coming).  Please send me an email, and I will fix the problem.

Please stay tuned over the next few weeks…I think you are going to like the new artwork!

Here’s a little sneak peek of something I am working on:

This October will be my 10 year anniversary as a Kentuckian.  To celebrate, I visited Bertha Hough, at The Folk Art Shop.  Bertha’s was the first shop to sell my artwork in Kentucky.  Her cozy log cabin is filled with wonderful handmade things!  I interviewed Bertha, and will share our delightful conversation very soon.   Notice the pot in her hand signed, Kenny Swinson 2000 (very rare!)

Also, don’t forget!

I’m having an open house at my studio at 1934 Old Main Street, Old Washington, KY. September 18-19 from 1-6pm.  This will be the first time the studio is open to the public.

Washington’s Simon Kenton Festival is the same weekend, so there will be lots to do!  for more information click here
