"Crow and the Pitcher" Heading to Rittenhouse Square Art Show

The van's packed with paintings and show gear and heading along its way to Philadelphia, PA for this weekend's Rittenhouse Square 84th Annual Art Show.

The "wet paint" award of the bunch goes to "Crow & the Pitcher" -- a painting almost completed on site a couple of weeks ago after finishing up Wayne Plein Air. While Randy was checking out the parking situation, I was looking for possible subjects for my Sunday, June 7, 1pm demo at the art show. Lots of possibilities but for that afternoon I chose this scene within viewing distance of the Park.

I finished it up in my studio in Great Falls, VA last night. You'll find it in Booth #26 in the Rittenhouse Square Art Show this weekend.

Friday, June 5, 11am to 7pm
Saturday, June 6, 11am to 7pm
Sunday, June 7, 11am to 5pm
Rain or shine ... but I'm hoping for shine!

I'll be in Booth #26 on Walnut Street. Come say hello! (Please pass the word, too.)
