Countdown to "Warm Observations"

In less than a week, "Warm Observations: People and Places" will have been hung with care at ArtSpace Herndon (750 Center Street, Herndon, VA) and I'll have prepared for ... and taught my first Still Life class of the Winter 2015 term.  Today, postcards went out in the mail and images were put up on my web site so you can see a preview of what's in the exhibition.

I KNOW that these decisions are not final. I'll tweak and move paintings in and out of the show, rearrange my display plan, juggle. But, click on the preview link above and at least you'll know what my plan is for today.

Once you're on my web site, you can click on any of the thumbnails to enlarge and get more info.

So many times, the art I want to see and create is what's needed right now. As beautiful as the snow was outside this morning, a dreary gray surrounded it. And, my toes were cold.  Look at the saturated color of what I've selected for my January show. Can't you feel the warmth in each as well?

Now, although it's strange timing ... I'm heading down to the studio. My antidote to a day of computer work. Very different ... and I can't wait.

If you're able, come to the exhibit that runs from January 13 to February 22 at ArtSpace Herndon.
Two main events:
Reception: Saturday, January 17, 7 to 9 pm
Painting Demonstration: Saturday, January 31, 2 to 5pm
Both are free and open to the public. I'd love to see you!
