Artfest features 50 artists juried for this one day, free, outdoor fine arts festival.  The weather should be beautiful ... but it takes place rain or shine.

What You'll See
Randy is loading the car right now with the 26 oil paintings I picked for tomorrow's show.  Paintings from two trips to Italy, interiors of the Old Brogue Irish Pub, the playground there at McLean Central Park ("Primary Colors" shown left), a plein air scene from Old Town Alexandria, a variety of still lifes including one fresh off the easel, a bit of NYC, Cumberland MD, Vienna's Meadowlark Gardens and animals from Kidwell Farm round out the mix.

Can't wait to see you!
