But, here are two paintings that will be under a tent this coming Sunday, October 6, 10am-5pm for the MPA McLean Artfest Juried Outdoor Arts Festival held in McLean Central Park at the corner of Old Dominion Drive and Dolley Madison Blvd. in McLean VA.

I so hope to see you there!

I had more to write today, but ran out of time. Hopefully, good ideas will spill out here another day.

For now, pictures. Worth a thousand words, right?
