Another Day on "The Olive Seller"

I'm not done ... but it's getting closer. This is from the Portobello Road Market in London. The crowds were a huge part of the scene and I'm working to convey that. I have quite a bit more to do, really working on edges and getting the glow of the light.

Reception, Friday, July 22 from 7 to pm for "Signs of Summer"
You are invited to the reception for the Artists' Atelier "Signs of Summer" show this coming Friday, July 22, 7-9 pm at 1144 Walker Road, Suite G, Great Falls.  My paintings "Lots of Peppers" and "Yellow Watermelon and Tamarillos" are hanging in the gallery.

And ... as an ongoing reminder:
August Exhibit of the 100 Faces in 100 Days Project at the Artists' Atelier
I'll soon be hanging the second exhibit of these 100 Faces (or 101) at the Artists' Atelier to be on view from August 1-31. You are cordially invited to visit (I'll establish open hours and post those on my web site and here on the blog) and especially invited for the two main events.
