Ted Nuttall Demo and Talk at Mispillion Art League
After his 3-day workshop in Rehoboth, Ted spent the weekend with us here in Milford. We had a great time on Saturday driving up to the Brandywine River Museum to see the Wyeths and touring N.C.'s home and studio. On Sunday we took the ferry to Cape May so that he could meet up with his friend and mentor, the award-winning Charles Reid. We even got to see the Monarch Butterflies migration over the ferry on our way out and a beautiful sunset on the way home. The weather was gorgeous and we arrived home each evening exhausted, shared a glass of wine and good talk about art, music, literature and life, catching up on each other's lives since we were last together.

On Monday we showed Ted my "just-about-ready-to-move-into" studio and introducing him to friends around town, stopping at Dolce for a coffee and checking in on Leigh Nagy, whose new shop "Minorbird Style" is also close to its grand opening. Monday evening he was welcomed by a standing room only crowd at Mispillion Art League where he gave a talk on his process in creating the stunning watercolor portraits he is famous for and demonstrating how he works. It was an exhilarating evening that everyone who attended enjoyed. All eyes were on Ted as he spoke and everyone left the gallery knowing they had experienced something very special.
