This is a painting I did in Blue Ridge in April for their paint out. It is along the Toccoa River in the early morning of the first day of painting. I have painted several paintings along the river and it is such a nice place to paint. Unfortunately, some of the areas I used to paint are now off limits due to abuse from some unruly rafters. I will have several paintings in the Bowen Center show "For Men Only" in Dawsonville. It will run from June 6 through the 27th. The reception for the show is on Saturday, June 6th from 5:00 until 7:00 pm. I will also have two paintings in the Quinlan Visual Arts Center 4th annual summer juried exhibition, "Local Color". This is a combined show with the art of Clayton Santiago and good friend Liefje Smith. The show will run from June 11th until August 9th. Come to the reception in Gainesville on Thursday, June 11th from 5:30 until 7:00 pm. Awards will be presented at 6:15.
