Thought you'd like to see a recent painting. These tulips are the beginning of a new series on the movement of light in still lifes. I've also gotten hooked on Waterford crystals -- a mix of vases and glasses will be showing up in this "light" series.
A couple of invitations: If you're near Reston, Virginia on the weekend, stop by the Artist Studio/Gallery on Lake Anne (come early and catch the Farmer's Market). The on-line gallery at
now has three sections of my work: City Scenes, Horses, and Past Favorites. I hope you can visit.
Thanks for coming by. Enjoy the bookstore. - Patricia
