Eva Perry Regional Library Event

Last Saturday (November 16, 2013) I participated in the Wake County Public Library's "Meet the Artist" Program by serving as the artist-of-the-month at the Eva Perry Regional Library in Apex, NC.  This afforded me a display area for the month in the library's atrium entrance, and I also provided a demonstration of my working techniques for library patrons.

For my demonstration, I began the underdrawing on a new, large diptych of an aerial image of the Five Points neighborhood in Raleigh.  However, I had so much activity at the table from patrons, I actually completed only a small portion of the drawing.  Most of my time was spent interacting with visitors, some as young as five-years-old.  It was a great afternoon, with a lot of interest shown by the patrons.  My thanks go out to the Eva Perry Regional Library staff (especially Amy Whitfield) for making it such a wonderful opportunity for me.

East Jones Street

This is another of the Raleigh-based scenes I produced earlier this year for my current show at the Richard B. Harrison Library.  The perspective is looking west on East Jones Street.

"East Jones Street."  Oil on canvas, 18 x 24 inches.  Completed August 2013.
