"Ayrshire Afternoon" 9x20 Pastel
I am very excited to announce my new solo exhibit "Nature Seen" at the Visit Loudoun Visitors Center in Leesburg in Market Station at the corner of Harrison St and Loudoun St. You can see 19 of my paintings there until September 18th, 2019. There will be a "Meet the Artist" First Friday art reception on August 2, 2019 from 6-9pm. The Visitors Center is open every day from 9am-5pm.
Thanks to all of you who visited me in my studio during the WLAST (Western Loudoun Art Studio Tour). I met so many interesting folks and I do hope that you will stay in touch with me and visit again!
If you've been thinking about trying to paint with soft pastels I have THREE summer pastel workshops scheduled! For the 1-day workshop Painting Seascapes in Soft Pastel Saturday, June 22 at the Atelier in the Garage in Leesburg, check out https://atelierinthegarage.com/collections/workshops.
There are two 2-Day workshops in which we'll delve a little deeper into different techniques and subject matter in "Painting with Soft Pastels - Everything You Need to Know". For Saturday and Sunday July 13-14th at the Great Falls School of Art, check out https://greatfallsart.org/event/pastels-ws/. For Tuesday and Wednesday July 16-17 at the Birkby House in Leesburg (through the Artists in Middleburg) https://www.theartistsinmiddleburg.org/summer-pastel-day-workshop.
If you happen to be in the beautiful Outer Banks and want to see some very fine art, check out the Seaside Art Gallery in Nagshead. I have several Seascapes in the gallery.
I offer private lessons (including Anyone Can Draw and Getting Started in Pastels) in my home studio in Leesburg. Please contact me if you would like to visit and see my latest works in progress.
