"Cars and Coffee Two," Painting, Painting, Painting

Classes are about to start. (Get more info and sign up for painting classes here.) My solo exhibit reception for "Along the Way" is just a short week away. (See an online preview of the show here or find out about the reception and events here.) A full Fall schedule is ahead.

Time to paint. A lot. My arm's worn out.

Another painting I've been wanting to get to is on the easel -- not ready for posting, but this one "Cars and Coffee Two" is. I'd set up my easel in early May of this year to capture this Great Falls, VA ritual, Cars and Coffee, held in the early hours every Saturday, weather willing. I was out there painting and enjoying it two weeks ago. It's possible I'll be there to see it tomorrow.  Too many choices for where to go, what to paint. Too few Saturdays.

Best news in my life ... Dad is still recovering, but happy and SO much better! Yay! YAY! Yay!
