Fall Semester Week 9--over the Hump! Two-man Show!
Well we are now officially over the hump in school with this being the 9th week of classes. I am over a bit of a hump as well personally as I just turned 50 on Wednesday--so it was really a hump week!! I spent my birthday painting away at school, enjoying a nice cake and good time with my friends. I put the finishing touches on my painting above, entitled Market Street. It's the final painting I will have time to finish before I have to go to the framer and get the paintings I need framed for the Emerging artist show I have next month with my buddy David Golas at Home Fine Art in Mount Holly. Our show opens on November 1st, and the reception is on the 12th. You can see images from the card we had printed up below.
