An Online Artist's Coop for Artists who Paint on Location
I just spent most of yesterday driving to Potomac, Maryland, USA, from my house, about 2 and a half hours, to hang an art show. I am sharing a show with another woman, both our paintings having to do with travel. Mine, of Ireland, hers of Italy. It is really going to be a nice show, in a great setting. Funny, the building used to be a tack (horse equipment) shop since the 1950's, and I would go in there every now and then as I was growing up. I grew up about 5 miles away, in Bethesda, MD.
I took only one really large painting, a 4 ft x 5 ft painting of Inis Oirr, and several smaller ones. I included one diptych painting which isn't of Ireland, but I put it into the show because it is of the Shenandoah River. While I was in Ireland, on the BBQ night of the AITO 2011, I got to sit in with the band. They sang the song, "Shenandoah", and when I told them I lived in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, that went over pretty well. So, I put this painting into the show in honor of my Irish musician friends! Slainte!
