Artfest, Studio Tour

Part of my "booth" at this weekend's artfest, debuting in my Family Room
Here's a sneak preview of some of the paintings that will be heading to Tent #3 at MPA Artfest, the outdoor juried arts festival taking place this coming Sunday, October 14, 10am-5pm in McLean Central Park (at the corner of Old Dominion Drive and Route 123 in McLean, VA).

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
An Evening of Artistry
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.

Register for Art Bucks
For the Great Falls Studio Tour, coming up October 20 & 21, Great Falls Studios is raffling off forty $50 Art Bucks -- a total of a $2000 giveaway -- of money to spend on art over the weekend. Good odds. Great art. Go to to register before October 18.
