Cobalt Blue Color Chart, Studio Tour This Weekend

I've got to be quick with this post ... I'm getting ready for the Great Falls Art Studio Tour this weekend where you'll find me ... Saturday and Sunday, October 16&17, 10am-5pm at the Artists' Atelier, 1144 Walker Road, Suites D&G, Great Falls, VA 22066. Sign up for a chance to win $50 in Art Bucks (certificates for $50 worth of purchasing power to be spent on art from one of the 48 artists participating in this self-guided tour all around Great Falls) at Winners will be selected soon.

I'm planning on giving a demo both Saturday and Sunday for about an hour each day from 1 to 2pm. The rest of the time I just want to talk to you about the process, inspiration, tools, etc. Anything you want to know or discover. 

Cobalt Blue Predominant Color Chart
I have lots to tell you, but no time. I'll hopefully get to other posts soon. For now, here's my latest color chart -- from yesterday, a Cobalt Blue Predominant Color Chart. See earlier posts for an explanation. And here's my painting of magnolia leaves, a gourd and tomato ... as a work in progress from last week. (It's further along now, but I don't have a photo of it.) This is one of the pieces that you'll have a chance to see this weekend. Come!
