|After the Blizzard, oils on panel, 11" x 14."|
Next week my art will be having its first exposure in the Shenandoah Valley at VECCA's (Valley Educational Center for the Creative Arts) 7 East Gallery , 123 S. Main Street in Woodstock, VA. I'm honored to be the Featured Artist for the month of February. And that is a nice way to celebrate the beginning of this blog's fifth year.
I thought this painting of the winter of 2010 blizzard would be appropriate for the invitation. We've been extraordinarily lucky these last couple of winters have not been severe. This winter has been quite civilized so far... cold enough to let us know it's here, a few inches of snow now and then, but nothing epic like the winter of 2010 with its record-setting back-to-back blizzards. How we'll fare during the rest of the winter in the Year of the Snake remains to be seen.
If you get a chance, please join us for some refreshments at the opening reception next Sunday, Feb. 3 from 2-4 PM at 7 East Gallery in Woodstock, VA--"the other Woodstock," the townspeople like to say.
