I’m getting the gallery at my studio ready for my first virtual art show tomorrow. The Crozet Arts & Crafts Festival has gone virtual, and I’ll be participating online as well as having an open house at the studio from 10-2. Masks are required, and private appointments can be made as well. Feel free to stop by virtually or in-person! I plan to paint while I’m there since that’s what I usually do at shows. It keeps me busy and less nervous.
My virtual booth will have all of my new paintings from this year. This is the most artwork I’ve created since college, and it’s been one very positive thing to come out of this very strange year. I’ve made 67 paintings that vary in size from my little watercolors which are 2.5″x3.75″ to acrylic paintings as large as 12″x24″. I hope to complete painting #68 during the festival!
Thank you all for your kind and generous support! I paint because the process of painting helps me find peace of mind. I get to slow down, explore, and play. I share and sell my work because that brings me so much joy in the wonderful people I have met and the stories they have shared with me.. I think of my work as brightening spaces in people’s homes with pops of color, but maybe it can do more than that. I’d like to think so.
