New Works Exhibit, Lorton

Students, faculty and staff of the Workhouse will be exhibiting original works created just for this New Works exhibition. On display will be works in all media. Two other exhibits are running concurrently as well.

My submission is a 8x10 soft pastel entitled Barrett House Meadow, which was created in September 2008 en plein air. The Barrett House is located nearby on another parcel of the prison property. Go check it out and tell me you enjoyed it. I appreciate the bold sky coupled with its charm. It reminds me of a Van Gogh, although that's not a goal I'd had when creating it.

There will be an artist's reception to celebrate this exhibition on Sunday, January 11 from 3PM until 5PM. Come to meet and see the artistic work of the creative individuals who are part of the Workhouse arts community.

Runs January 7 through February 15.

Hi Bonnie,

I really like the greens.
I couldn't magnify the image, but with this size it reminds me of fractal landscapes.
Good luck for the exhibition.

Take care,

Hi José,
Thanks for coming by. It has a great green glow in person, too. I like the clouds; they were due to a hurricane up the coast. You can see my interpretation of the banding.

If you click on the Barrett House text link, it goes to my original post about it and a larger picture.

Hi Bonnie,
I love your blog and I am so glad to have met a local fellow pastelist. I will be a "follower" of your blog for sure. Have a great time at the reception.
Warmest Regards and Happy Painting,
Ariel F.

Hi Ariel,
It was great meeting you and touring your lovely blog. You are one busy lady and it charms me that you're from the biological sciences, too. I added you to the roll on my sidebar. Looking forward to tracking you, too. And I'll look for you at an MPS meeting.
