Today, I hung thirteen pieces at King Street Coffee in Leesburg, VA. I'll post photos of the exhibition at a later date. But in the meantime, if you are in Leesburg, stop by. My work will be on display from now until the end of February.
The official Artist Reception will be Friday, February 4, as part of Leesburg's First Friday Gallery Walk from 6-9 p.m.
I also have a piece of art hanging in a current show, Center Pieces, at the Franklin Park Arts Center in Purcellville, VA. See Steve Loya's post - he also has a piece on display. The Center Pieces exhibition will be on display through the end of the month.
So, it has been an artful new year thus far. Here's hoping that it will continue.

This is the latest video tutorial that I have uploaded to YouTube. It demonstrates how to use salt and rubbing alcohol to create textures in watercolor paint.
Also, our publisher F+W Media has created a new mixed-media website called Create Mixed Media the have posted many free PDF downloads from some of their books including ours. Check it out. I'm sure you will find a lot of goodies to inspire your creative endeavors. Specially check out the two free downloads from our book. The first download is all about page alteration, and second is all about writing.
