Night Painting In Old Town

Two more paintings from Old Town ... from Tuesday night.  I couldn't see my palette or easel well ... but the view was great enough from this spot to give it a shot anyway.  Enjoy!

Because I was taking the photos at night, with wet paintings, there's a huge glare to contend with. When I get a chance, I will replace the photos with better ones.

I'm heading back to Old Town Alexandria (VA) in just a minute for the Awards Reception of the "Large Works, Small Works" exhibit at the Art League. "Garden Girl" won an Honorable Mention.

So that's it for now.
