I feel as though i have just finished a painting marathon! I started 40 paintings in less then two weeks. Two weeks, painting from sunrise to sunset, with rain only causing me to pause, not stop. I knew that the more I painted and saw today, the richer and more true tomorrow's paintings would be. Being able to invite others to paint with me was both inspiring and satisfying. I loved offering others a taste of what I had been given with this Residency. I kept an eye out for rattle snakes, and now realize that I got used to the perspective of looking down (from the Park) at the rest of Virginia. I look forward to sharing the finished work in the future.
I invite you to join me, have a drink and refreshments on January 20th from 4-7PM for this special exhibition at Gay Street Gallery in Washington, VA. See the 20+ paintings started while on my 2017 summer Residency.
The Gallery will donate 20% of the sales price to the Shenandoah National Park Trust for all of my paintings sold on January 20th.
