Artist David Plank Visits the Springfield Art Museum.

Drawing Birds since the early 1940s.

I’m very lucky; I’m surrounded by art at home and at work. I sell prints, oil paintings, etchings, etc. That’s what happens when your store has the word “gallery” in its name. However, it’s not often that I deal directly with an artist.
Years ago, my dad hosted exhibitions for Missouri artists, then, following the exhibits, he would sell the artists’ works. Usually, he sold the artists’ prints from the original artwork. One of the artists he had a show for was David Plank.

David is a watercolorist who has a passion for painting birds in their natural habitat. I had the pleasure to meet him several years ago when I was working with my Dad. I remembered him as a quiet, interesting, tall, thin man. One single print from his collection remains in my print cases.
On March 8, he was the featured artist at a gallery talk at the Springfield Art Museum. So, Theresa and I had a date night! I had a chance to listen to David’s talk and enjoy his watercolors and pencil drawings in the Badgley Gallery section of the Art Museum. Even though it had been thirty + years, he remembered me and my Dad and we had a chance to reminisce about the “good” old days.

An Anglican Tradition

Eating a Medieval Cake on Mothering Sunday.

Fr. John Biggs-Chef Extraoridinary

Fr. John Biggs-Chef Extraoridinary

Today is Mothering Sunday in the UK. As Americans celebrate Mother’s Day in May, the English have been celebrating their mothers during Lent since medieval times. Set on the fourth Sunday during the Christian Lenten Season, domestic servants were given the day off to worship at their family church and spend the day with their mothers. It’s developed into a day of honoring mothers with gifts and food.

A simnel cake is traditionally served on Mothering Day. It is a light fruit cake. Different regions of the UK have different versions of the cake, though most are heavy on butter, eggs and dried fruit.

Since Downton Abbey is between seasons, we’re lucky that we could get our “English” fix at church today. Two sample simnel cakes were made for this fourth Sunday in Lent and served after the late service at Christ Episcopal Church.

To all the English mums – Hope you had a wonderful day.

Gathering the Clans.

Robert Burns (1759-1796)

Robert Burns (1759-1796)

A taste of Scottish hospitality.

On Saturday night, we attended a program by the Scottish St. Andrew’s Society of Springfield. The occasion was their Annual Robert Burns Supper. Robert Burns is most often recognized as Scotland’s famous poet and the Burns Supper is held each January around the world to pay homage to his written word.

The Burns Supper was comparable to a church service, although Burns is on a pedestal, he was hardly a saint. Sitting and standing, candlelight, listening to the poems and singing the lyrics. Added to this was the addressing and eating haggis; toasting and drinking whisky; bagpipes and guitar; kilts and tartans. Burns isn’t worshipped but he is celebrated.

For the 2013 event, the Springfield group was joined by a group from The Scottish Club of Tulsa for the stories and songs at the Tower Club. The full house was entertained by pipers Jay and Lucinda Goetz and by folk performer Colin Grant-Adams. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the life and poems of Robert Burns by several members of the society.
