Stormy Weather

The theme of the The Maryland Federation of Arts "Stormy Weather" show was from onset to aftermath and all in between.  It was held in the Annapolis Maritime Museum in Annapolis, MD from 1/15/15 - 3/15/15.  I thought the theme was perfect for one of my abstract paintings called "Whirlwind".  

2015 Art League Patron's Show


The Patron's Show is the largest fund raiser for the Alexandria Art League and this year I donated a painting called "The Strand in Old Town".  I painted it plein air in 2010.   It is a part of Alexandria that may be changing in the future with all of the development being done  along the waterfront.
