|Part of my "booth" at this weekend's artfest, debuting in my Family Room|
I have had a more difficult time than ever before choosing what to bring/hang. That's at least one of the reasons why this isn't a more revealing view. This way, I can still change my mind. There's only so much space.
|Painting during the Evening of Artistry last night|
Last night I participated in a Studio Tour Exclusive Preview party, an Evening of Artistry at the Gulick Group model home in Autumn Woods (Great Falls, VA). It really was a wonderful party -- with too many potential models to paint -- the food table (which was gorgeous), a flower arrangement from Mayflowers, a harpist, party guests. You get the picture. During a final hour of sanity, I decided to work toward finishing what seems like a gadzillion unfinished paintings instead. The result, I'm closer to finishing ... and I had a chance to talk to visitors to the event.
