I participated in the 3rd Annual Historic Buford Paint Out last Friday and Saturday. I had a great time and was delighted to have won a purchase award for one of my paintings done Saturday morning. Here is a small 6 x 8 study I did Saturday afternoon. Our paintings will be displayed in the Tannery Row Artist Colony Gallery for the next month. Drop by and see them if you are in the area. We will be showing our work at the "Spring Fling" in downtown Dawsonville, this weekend, May 2 and 3 from 10 until 5. The event will be around the Bowen Center and the Dawson County Middle School. There are a lot of events such as a 5K and 10K run, a car show, bike ride, and music. Please come by see what we have been working on.
This painting was accepted into the Atlanta Artists Center Dogwood Show. There will be a reception at the Atlanta Artists Center, 2979 Grandview Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30305 on Saturday, April 11th from 5 until 7 pm. Everyone is more than welcome to attend. This is one of the major shows of the year and is always a wonderful show. Shane McDonald was the judge for the show.
