"Horsepower" Painting Continued

Sorry to have been away from posting for awhile. Last week's talks on top of teaching made more restful days necessary. Portrait class for the last two Wednesdays have been clay days -- working to help students discover the face in three dimensions. It's been fun!

"Not Picasso" -- one of two paintings headed to the Salmagundi Club
Tonight -- after a full day of applications for various art events -- it was time to return to "Horsepower" -- my painting of an energetic carriage horse from Central Park in NYC.  I actually have another reason to return to it. One of the results of the talk on my "100 Faces in 100 Days" to the League of Reston Artists was an offer to show my animal (Feathered and Furry Friends series) paintings in an August exhibit.  That would be easier if a Summer solo show at the Great Falls Library wasn't in the works and the animal paintings weren't quite so popular.  (I'm glad they are -- Thank you collectors!) See more of them in the Animal collection on my web site: (click on Works).

More shows are coming up. Two paintings headed to the Salmagundi Club in NYC for the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club's Member Exhibition.  "Harborside Happy Hour" and "Not Picasso" will be on exhibit there March 10 to March 28.
