Expanded Studio and Colvin Run Historical Street Fair This Sunday

My newly expanded, spiffed up space at the Artists' Atelier in Great Falls, VA
The Artists' Atelier, the studio I share with 15 other artists, will be open tomorrow, Sunday, May 15, noon to 4pm at 1144 Walker Road, Suites D&G, Great Falls, VA 22066. The Colvin Run Historic Street Fair celebrates the Colvin Run Neighborhood's 200th anniversary. Lots going on in the School House, at the Atelier and Great Falls School of Art, and at the Colvin Run Mill. Please stop by to see some art and enjoy refreshments.

Expanded Studio Space
The new wall
On May 1, I took out additional space upstairs in the Atelier, widening and deepening the space for more walls to hang art and more foot space ... so I have room to set up a still life or have someone sit for me and I can still stand back. Today, Randy and I hung more work, put down some more gray rubber tile (easier on the feet) and settled in. I haven't utilized the extra foot room but ... I can't wait!

My house currently has a lot of hooks missing their paintings. With the Artists' Atelier show (with "Dining Al Fresco," "Through the Window," "Elizabeth" and "Summer Reading") at the Candy Factory in Manassas, my 100 Faces in 100 Days exhibit at the Great Falls Library (with my 100 Faces plus five more favorite paintings) and all the additional paintings in my studio, it's never been clearer that I have lots of  painting to do. Well, great!
