Works in progress...

Hand Painted Silk Pillow
16" x 12"
I am in the crazed place again. ( Blogging IS one way to avoid producing work! )
Next week I have to deliver 14 paintings for a SOLO show in Virginia on Tuesday at the Raytheon Building in Tysons Corner. I am one of the artists that takes part in the Arts Council of Farifax County's "Art in the Work Place". It is a wonderful program that uses the art of local artists in a county program to hang good work in public places. It gives the artists exposure and a few sales, and gets our names around in the Metro DC area. It is run by a real gentleman named John Dusenberry. He has a great eye for art, and more importantly recognizes artists as one of our country's great resources. I am lucky that he often will use my work in very prominent places in the area as part of their program. I appreciate his support and encouragement!
THEN on Thursday my partner and I have to deliver large paintings and 10 New Silk wall hangings for a SOLO SHOW as featured artist in the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, Annapolis Maryland. The show is entitled transmutations and features large (65" x 45") silk wall hangings I have created hung with my original paintings that inspired them.
Needless to say I'm a bit crazed trying to finish the tapestries ( oh yes , they have not all been painted yet... unlike my usual efficient and well prepared self... !!!!!)
Have a happy fourth!
until next time
