Meet Shadley!

 The next artist we'd like you to meet is Shadley Grimes, who will be joining us at our open house again this year with her original paintings.  She's a great artist - and both Laura and I have special pieces of hers hanging in our own homes!

Shadley Grimes studied art at the University of Iowa where her work was called, "drawings with paint."  Over the years her work has evolved into large "doodles" on upcycled windows.  Painted with tempera, India ink, and other paint, these windows come ready to hang and sealed with a protective finish.  Shadley loves creating interesting shapes and new color combinations.  She lives in North Liberty with her husband Dan, daughters Eden and Elly, and son Esias.

Here's the painting I have in our bedroom:

We're really excited to show you pictures of a few of the new paintings that Shadley will have for sale this weekend:

We can't wait to spend the day with her - she's like an honorary sister and we always have a blast!
