morning

 

It is time again for tiny art!!! The artspace biennial, ThinkSmall 9, is opening this Thursday, October 26 (preview gala) and Friday, October 27, 7:00-10:00 both evenings. I have been working on some small oil paintings on panel and paper, and the one pictured, Morning, is in the show. It is oil on paper and the image measures 3″ x 3″. There will be lots of work in the show, all available for purchase. This is a fund-raiser for the gallery and your purchase will help support gallery and artists alike. Drop by at zero East 4th Street in Richmond’s Manchester district for a feast for eye and soul. The show runs to December 17 and all are welcome!!! More information at the link above.
