Life Happens

Let me apologize for the lack of posts for the last couple of weeks but my family and I have been dealing with some life events. Because of these events I have not had much studio time. Dealing with a car accident involving an intoxicated driver (the person who hit me) and the driver leaving the scene (life event one) and then a week later a trip to the emergency room (my wife)followed by emergency surgery (life event two) will slow you down a little.

Slowly I will be back in the studio and hunkering down to get some work done. I did manage to get four pieces up to the Aldie Mill Art show and Sale which opens Labor Day Weekend. I will not be able to be there for the opening reception but do plan on being there Sunday September 7th doing a drawing demonstration - I hope to see you there!

Everyone on my mailing list should be receiving the announcement for the Aldie Mill show in the next week along with some others announcements about other upcoming exhibitions that I am part of. Sorry that it is a bit late.

Thank you to my family and friends for all your help!!!

New painting

While the other painting is drying I have composed another piece and have it ready to take the first layer of color. Below are images of the composition sketch, the drawing on canvas and finally the toned canvas.
