UPDATE 5/15/13: I sold all four pieces that I submitted to this show. If you are interested in an original painting similar to these, please contact me.

I just submitted four paintings to the annual Norfolk Academy Art Show.

This is a fun exhibit that attracts over 100 local and area artists. The show can be overwhelming because the visual stimuli of so many different styles from so many artists can be overwhelming. But it's a great way to see the breadth and variety of the local art scene.

The opening reception is Saturday, April 27, from 6-8 p.m. at the John H. Tucker, Jr. Arts Center, 1585 Wesleyan Ave., Norfolk, VA 23502. The show will remain up for about two weeks.


These are three of my four pieces. The fourth one is a Zippy the alien painting that I did not get around to scanning but is similar to ones I've done in the past.

Two of the artists who will be exhibiting whose work I always look forward to are Karen Eide, who does amazing encaustic paintings, and Jeanne Goodman, who does evocative animal portraits. I took a workshop with Karen awhile ago and have great respect for that difficult medium.
