|View from the Watergate|
oil painting by Jane McElvany Coonce
When I went over to see George Bush's paintings at the Kennedy Center, I also took a walk on the newly built foot ramp that crosses over the busy road (Virginia Ave) to a path along the river. There are beautiful views of Georgetown at an angle I've never painted before.
I took lots of photos as I walked along. I did a watercolor of this scene last fall, but this is the first oil.
I need for it to dry so I can sign it. Then I will take it over to my 2nd floor studio at Gallery Clarendon. The sad news is that Gallery Clarendon is closing Feb 8. The landlords have rented it to a pizza place. We are sad to lose the gallery, but are happy that we had the opportunity to run a gallery there for a year and a half. So stop by and take a look at our beautiful gallery before it closes.
