Three of my paintings join plenty of others from the Paint the Shenandoah exhibit of plein air works created by regional artists invited to capture images this Summer of the Shenandoah National Park, Sperryville, Little Washington and other area sights. All are on view at River District Arts, 3 River Road, Sperryville, VA, August 16 to October 12 with an opening reception on Saturday, August 16 from 2 to 4pm.  I will be taking a respite from moving boxes to attend the reception.  I hope to see you there.  It's a beautiful drive from the Washington DC area.
