Well we're heading to the Shadyside Art Festival on Walnut Street, Pittsburgh ... in just a few minutes. There, bright (actually still dark) and early Saturday morning, Randy and I will be setting up the tent, loading it with many of my favorite paintings including these three, never exhibited before/freshly framed new ones.
