|"Trevi Fountain," oil, 14"h x 11"w was purchased by a new collector (to me) on Sunday at the||Holiday Show|
|From the National Gallery of Art web site, one of Mary Borgman's charcoal drawings|
After a tour, viewing some more of the rooms, and sitting down to draw one of the fountains (it's about halfway there -- to be finished at another time), it was off to the American Art Museum -- to see the Civil War art exhibit and around the corner to the National Portrait Gallery. At the Portrait Gallery, there is a six-person exhibit called "Drawing on the Edge" that's part of their Portraiture Now program. Of the group, way-over-life-sized charcoal drawings created on Mylar by Mary Borgman were my favorites. Talk about power. Go to the Smithsonian Institution's National Portrait Gallery site: http://www.npg.si.edu/exhibit/drawing/ to view the "Drawing on the Edge" exhibit ... and then make it down there in person if you can.
Thank You For Your Support
I feel truly blessed to have people who care about my work, show up at events whenever they can, email and talk with me, read the blog, want to own one of my originals, cheer me on, agree to model for me, and decide to take a piece home with them. You are amazing!!!
You are why I get to paint and create as my life's work. Thank you!!!
