Last night Kris and I attended the opening reception for the "As You Like It" show at Tryst Gallery, Leesburg, Virginia. It was an exciting evening because we both have work in the show, and many friends came out (some who also have art in the show) for the event! The exhibit featured 8" x 8" work from local artists, in a wide variety of formats, from relief sculpture to photography, and everything in between. With the great weather just around the corner, I recommend stopping by the gallery for a look at this extraordinary showcase of local art, which will be on display for a couple of months!
In the meantime, I've been on a brief hiatus with the Endangered Kingdom series, as it nearly comes to a close. Springtime can be a very busy time for an art teacher, and sometimes little time and energy is left for making one's own art. That's ok though, because I'm finally on spring break and can fire up the art-making engines once again, starting next week. I decided to have the series close at fifty pieces from both the Splotch Monster, as well as the portrait versions, giving me 100 works in the end - a good number to finish with. See you soon!
