Mark painted this for Sophie for her birthday. He finished it last weekend, so a little late. Paint is acrylic (which isn't ideal for this b/c the paint is hard to blend, but he's not practiced in oils yet). It's apparently very hard to capture a face correctly. He nailed it. Her eyes, shape of her face, her mouth. I am so proud of him.
Mumford & Sons is coming to Indianapolis on Labor Day!!! As you'll recall, the concert in Bonner Springs was postponed. It was rescheduled to the end of September, on a date we have another obligation. I got a refund from Ticketmaster. The same day they announced the rescheduled dates, they announced a new tour, which includes the stop in Indy.
Same set up for tickets as last time--you sign up & they invite you to buy tickets (no idea what the qualifications are for being invited, but I'm confident I will since I'm a member of their fan club with the same email I registered for tickets with). You get to buy tickets before they go on sale to the general public. Indy's outdoor concert venue is fabulous. We've been there a lot. And we can stay with my sister in law. We plan to make a weekend out of it. Win-win all around!
