Orrville Academy / Dunaway House

A time to reflect and a time to rejuvenate.... that's what the Selma Pilgrimage does for my soul. I just returned from my third visit to Selma and my third "Selma Pilgrimage." If you love history and you've never visited, I highly recommend you mark the date on your calendar for next year. The locals are proud of their heritage, as they should be. It's a beautiful little nook in Alabama rich with history.
This was my first painting at the Pilgrimage of the Orrville Academy / Dunaway House. To read about a little bit of the history of the home, click here.
The Orrville Mayor posed for me to take his picture :)
This year the Alabama Plein Air Artists were invited to stay in Selma's local artist Karen Weir's daughter's home. Karen was a spectacular hostess, and her husband Jim is precious as well, and didn't seem to mind all of us free-spirited artists invading his home.
I saw some old friends and made some new ones. It was a wonderful trip, once again.
