Derby - First Saturday in May

First Saturday in May

In Kentucky, the First Saturday in May
has great significance
as everyone gets ready for the Kentucky Derby.
People are getting their outfits ready if they're going to the Derby,
planning parties, food and office pools even if they're not.

I've personally never been, but love to watch all the pagentry on TV
and have gone to several Derby parties.
Any reason to get dressed up and wear a hat is all right in my book.
I love hats.
This was painted from a photo I took several years ago.
I took my mom there and we took the full tour, front side, back side and inside the
Kentucky Derby Museum.

Click here to purchase First Saturday in May

$100 in this wood shadowbox frame that stands alone, or on your decorative easel
or hang on a wall.

This is the front door of the Kentucky Derby Museum.

These two paintings were a lot of fun to paint and
they would look great individually. . .

 but put them together and you're making a real statement.

If you're going to the Derby this year and want something to help remember the day,
these paintings may be just the ticket.
