"Horsepower" Officially Finished

And my exhibit postcards are in! Wow! They look terrific. Modern Postcard printed them and I think this batch is the very best.

Assuming I make it through the next three or four intense days, they will be heading to some of your mailboxes.  If you'd like to make sure you get one, please email me your snail mail address.

Today I went over to the Great Falls Library to measure the walls.  Even with just two days to go, I'm struggling with which pieces to hang. As difficult as it is to pack everything up, it would be most helpful to have a solid idea of what would fit, look best, make the most interesting exhibit.  Perhaps gazing into a crystal ball will help.

"Horsepower," hopefully, will be part of the exhibit.  I'll let you know on Friday night the official list.

My solo show, "Serendipity," will be on exhibit at the Great Falls Library, 9830 Georgetown Pike, Great Falls, VA from July 1 to August 31. The opening reception is Saturday, July 20, 1 to 4pm.
