The Watermelon Festival at Devault Vineyards
What a glorious morning in Virginia! Unfortunately it was punctuated by horrific news. My dear friend Sassy "Ryan" Massie passed away the night before. I cried deeply for several hours after learning of the news, then pulled up my bootstraps and got to work.
The weather was cheerful and the venue equally inviting. I enjoyed meeting new people while painting the Dragonfly Sunset for all the eager faces watching me. It was a sad day indeed, but we chose to hold communion and fellowship in spite of the disparaging news. I'm grateful to my old friends who are gone and to my new friends I've found in their wake. #keeplynchburgsassy
