I just finished hanging “The Expressive Equine” in the new Jefferson Arts Council space. This is the first time they have been hung as a “herd.” It’s so much fun to see them galloping across the walls together! I’m struck at once by both the evolution of style and technique over the past few years, and the exuberant spirit that is core to each canvas….
Stop in and visit! (Masks, distancing and hand sanitizer required.)
Though galleries are closed due to Covid, the intrepid Appalachian Pastel League transcended lockdown in the online show, “Emergence!” I entered several paintings from the “Picture Wild Ponies” project. “Forest Flight” won it’s division! I’m so thrilled and honored!

“Forest Flight” Pastel on Uart
Neither flu nor strep nor forecast nor’easters can keep me away from the wild horses this weekend! Panels toned and drying for this much-anticipated plain air workshop on Assateague Island. I can’t wait to see what they look like come Sunday! All thanks to Mark for this amazing birthday present! (Don’t worry folks, doc swears I’m not contagious!)

In a hotel somewhere in the midwest, it’s time to triage possibility. Between Mark, Cyd, and AAA we could spend weeks here, but we have only a handful of days.
Tunes Blaring, car loaded , we’re on the road again! Haven’t hashed out an exact itinerary but we have a solid two days drive til we’re among Utah’s National Parks.
