Results of the 1st day of the Studio Tour

Snowy Day on the Washington Mall
oil by Jane McElvany Coonce
It was a dreary day today with a light rain falling throughout the day.  But at least it wasn't the hurricane!

I had 16 people come through and see my art.  It was great chatting with neighbors and friends and meeting new people, too.

Two of my paintings found  new homes.  The first one, "Snowy Day on the Washington Mall", was painted to be my Christmas card this year.  This is the first show this painting has been in.

The 2nd one is a painting I did from a photo I took at the Folk Life Festival down on the Mall.  It was of a woman from Africa weaving.  When I saw this woman, I loved the way the light hit her face and how her outfit matched her coloring. When I saw the photo, I knew it would make an interesting painting.

If you missed coming today, you still have a chance to make it.  Tomorrow, Sunday, is the last day of the studio tour.  It's from 1 pm to 5 pm, so drop by, have some refreshments, chat with me, pick up a map and continue the tour.
My address is 4057 N. 27th St. Arlington , VA.  Hope to see you!
