"Lynne" and "Secret Garden" were both chosen to be included in the 2010 Portrait Society of Atlanta Spring Exhibition. The juror for this exhibit is Dawn Whitelaw, a nationally respected portrait artist from Nashville,TN. The show will be at the Gallery at Paper Mill (a new venue) at 255 Village Parkway, Ste. 320, Marietta, GA. The opening reception will be Saturday, May 8, 2010, from 6-9pm. Light refreshments will be served. I hope you can join me there. The exhibition runs through May 28th.
I've been in the mood to draw recently as a diversion from painting. "A Little Reassurance" is a 22x15 charcoal. It's not a commission for anyone, I just felt like creating a drawing that tells a story. The little girl is the subject of a portrait I did a couple of years ago. She was a little apprehensive the day I took photos so she was holding her mother's hand. I drew the daughter low in the compositions to show that she is small and just added the hand to tell the story.
