These 2 works of mine, "Jenna - Haiti" and "Italian Still Life with Fruit", will be in Blue Ridge, GA in the SAAG National Juried Exhibition, October 16 - November 12. What a perfect time of the year to be in Blue Ridge. Jenna is a child in Haiti and this drawing is included in a project I'm working on to benefit the families there. I will definitely post more later about this event. This still life has certainly been in a lot of exhibitions but it's sold and this will be the last time it is exhibited for a while.
