Rap PP 1The Paint Party at Rappahannock Cellars was a huge success last night.  With 65 painters it is the largest paint party we have ever held.  Everyone was enthusiastic and energized by their terrific paintings….and fabulous wine.  It was a great combination.  Thank goodness for Lauren and Michele, two of my art students, who helped me work the party. Here are some scenes from the evening.  (And thanks Lauren for the panoramic shot.)  We can’t wait for the next one on May 12th!

Last Saturday we had the Festival of Leaves in downtown Front Royal.  Even though it was a rainy day we had people coming by Delilah’s to see all the new work we have by the wonderful artists who are there.  I set up outside in a tent and started a new vineyard painting.  Here is the start of it.

I get invited to paint at special events from time to time.  A good friend of mine is manager at Peebles here in town and invited me to paint there for a special promotion they were doing last spring.  They had me back this weekend.  I painted a larger version of a small painting (Virginia WIne I, see it here) that I did a few weeks ago and I enlisted a helper.  Often, when painting on location, I invite kids to “help” me.  And usually they jump right in.  This little girl was  so much fun.  She helped me paint for a while and then she did her grandmothers make-up at a table they had set-up for people to try out some new things.  Adorable.

Virginia Wine II, is acrylic on canvas, 18″x24″ and is almost finished.  I still have a little more to do to it but we got a great deal done at the event.
