Started to paint with watercolors on Yupo, a synthetic paper with a smooth surface. Painting on Yupo creates unusual effects, since the paint is not absorbed into the paper. As it stays wet for a while, I can move the paint around longer. The paper is semi-translucent also. Dance #5, shown here, is an example, I have framed it in a simple silver frame and will deliver it to the buyer soon.

I'm excited to be an artist in residence at Palette 22, a new restaurant in Shirlington, VA which features international street food, art for sale, an artist working during every shift while you eat, and a great happy hour! I have been fortunate to sell lots of art there, I meet interesting people and am having a lot of fun! I love residencies...they get me out of the home studio and are very productive.
Happy to be participating in ARTOMATIC, a huge art festival taking place October 30-Dec 12 outside of Washington DC
