"Girl With the Pearl Earring (after Vermeer)" 16x20 Pastel
My first collaborative piece, "The Girl With The Pearl Earring (after Vermeer), painted with artist friend Jay Pigeon, is on display at the Tryst Gallery in Leesburg. I wanted to try copying one of my favorite paintings in my favorite medium and this is the result!
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. This is the last week of the beautiful Animals exhibit. I have several animal (as well as seascape) paintings on display.
"Pastels For Everyone" class at the Great Falls School of Art is in full swing. Registration will be open soon for the spring session. The 6-week course is held on Thursday evenings from 6-9pm and is suitable for all levels, whether you're a beginner or an experienced artist who wants to learn and practice the versatile medium of soft pastel. Go to www.greatfallsart.org to register.
I also 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.
