Tom Barnicott’s 15 Minutes of Fame

Tom Barnicott at PNC Park

The 4th of July has always been a great holiday for fun with family and friends. As you can
see, our girls are growing up fast! The twins are coming up on their 1st birthday later this month, and Aria will be 3 at the end of August. It’s been quite a ride!

However, this week my family’s biggest story is Tom Barnicott, TV Star!

Tom, as you know, isn’t your typical retiree.  Instead of finding a new hobby and catching up on his reading, Tom landed his dream job as a guest relations ambassador for the Pirates at PNC Park.  Basically, his job is to help make sure fans have a great experience when they come out to see a Bucs game.  So when a fan in the stands caught Josh Bell’s homerun ball and asked if he could get his signature on it, Tom was happy to help. To our surprise, the whole thing was caught on camera, and there was Tom, way bigger than life, making it happen up there on the big screen!

But as much as I enjoy the Fourth, it’s typically not a lazy holiday for me. I’m already packed up and ready to head out for Twin Lakes Park for the Westmoreland Arts and Heritage Festival. And I’m taking lots of new pieces with me!

But as much as I enjoy the Fourth, it’s typically not a lazy holiday for me. This year it marked the first day I was at Twin Lakes Park for the Westmoreland Arts and Heritage Festival. And I have lots of new pieces with me!

Plus, this weekend I’m celebrating my 30th anniversary of Painting Pittsburgh with unannounced Twin Lakes show-exclusive specials!

The festival runs today 11-8 and tomorrow from 11-6 at Twin Lakes Park, 252 Twin Lakes Rd, Greensburg, PA. Can’t wait to see you there!
