"Here and There" Exhibit Up Online

And the show will be hung for real this Saturday, February 1 at the Old Brogue Irish Pub, 760C Walker Road, Great Falls, VA. It may look a little different than the online version does now. I'm definitely having a wicked case of indecision and just getting consistent framing can change the final selections.

But at least I'm farther along tonight than I was this am.

I took better photos -- not perfect, but closer.

I've updated my web site with more info on upcoming and current shows ("Flowers, Chocolate and Romance" at the Artists' Atelier, the Women Painters of the Southeast Third Annual Juried Exhibit in March in Greensboro, Georgia and "Here and There" at the Brogue)... plus added the last three pieces: "Irish Pub," "Ladies Lunch" and "The Snuggery."

Preview of my Here and There show that will hang on Saturday. View online.
There are couple more to do's on today's list ... so it's time to go to work on that.

As mentioned before, prices will change come February 1.  Some examples: 18" x 24" paintings priced at $2400 will be $2640, 16" x 20" paintings will go from $1760 to $1850. Go to for the last day at 2013 prices. (Prices will be adjusted on the Solo Exhibit page Saturday morning.)
