Feathered and Furry Friend Paintings Up

Not a great photo, but here they are in the lobby.
Four paintings from my animal series went up in an exhibit at the Seneca Hill Animal Hospital, Resort and Spa yesterday in a two-person show with Tina Learned, my Artists' Atelier studiomate. They include "Grazing on Buttercups," "Rainbow" (peacock), "Goatyard" from Wayne Plein Air and my latest chicken/rooster painting "He Started It!." I'll try to add better individual photos of the paintings later.
Seneca Hill is located at 11415 Georgetown Pike, Great Falls, VA 22066.

More new paintings have been added to the Animal, Still Life and Places collections on my web site. Take a look at when you get a chance.

Plus I have an intern! Last weekend's visitors brought a young woman from Germany whose passion is art. She'd been applying for internships for her four-month stay here in Virginia. Somewhere in our conversation I mentioned my 100 Faces in 100 Days project ... and she offered to help. So, today Jamie and I sat down for some training and discussions of what she can do and I'll be reporting on that progress ... as it progresses. Both of us are excited about this internship. Yea!

The post has to go up. I'll add more in just a bit.
