The artist will speak about how her father met her at the river while he was in hospice ~ to inspire a series of paintings with messages of love and eternal life.

Dorothy Fagan Studio by the Pond is located in Mathews County, Virginia. A world away from the husstle and bustle, Mathews County hangs out into the Chesapeake Bay east of Richmond. Nine rivers flow into the bay, giving Fagan plenty of water's edge on which to paint.

STUDIO TALK

"Remembering You on Our Meandering Garden Path"
11:00 - noon
Sept. 6 & 7
FREE

Fagan will share how her mother Pauline comes in dreams to inspire her to complete their soul mate connection, by painting and designing fabrics for home decor and clothing. 

"Mom first started talking to me in dreams after she passed away in '89. It took me a long time to understand the meaning and purpose. The idea that we share a purpose with a soul mate gives deeper meaning to life."
