Anne-Marie and I will be showing our paintings at a very special event at the Palisades Country Club on September 1, 2016. Please see the attached flyer with all of the details. If you are in the area, you won’t want to miss this. Note that this is a non-political event to show the Reading Rooms that are being installed in schools across the country with hopes of starting a Chapter for the Charlotte schools.

“The implementation of Carson Reading Rooms assists with the development of reading skills and a love of reading, both of which fuel the academic success of the students.” The kids can choose any book they want – strictly for their pleasure.

2016-DC

Had a marvelous time at our recent On the Road Exhibition near Washington DC. Despite the heat, our hosts – Misty and Randy were great and our guests  seemed to really enjoy themselves. I think the highlight of this trip was learning how to use Uber for the first time when we went to the National Gallery. It was great and so easy – what technology can do for us!

On the Road Again – Washington DC

Aside

Anne-Marie and I will be traveling to DC with our paintings for the Art Exhibition on Saturday, July 23. If anyone, especially those that cannot get there, would like a pdf of all of the paintings in the exhibit, please send an email to jannpollard@mac.com. These are great prices and all will be framed. I would honor pre-sales, of course. Perhaps do a little pre-Holiday shopping?

On the Road to Washington, DC

My artist friend, Anne-Marie and I had so much fun doing the Texas road trip, we are doing it again. But this time it will only be a 6 hour drive to Mannasas, Virginia, outside of Washington, DC. The date is Saturday, July 23 at the lovely home of Misty & Randy. I would love to send you or friends an Evite, should you be close to that area or you know someone that is.

The painting above is “Appalachian Vista”, acrylic on linen, 14″ x 11″. On one of my husband’s bike trips, I hiked, with others, to the top of this mountain for an amazing view of 4 mountain ranges. All paintings will be framed and quite well-priced for this event.

Texas Longhorn

Aside

After our Art Exhibition, we were invited to tour a lovely garden in a home in Argyle, Texas. This Longhorn attracted me and we stared at each other for quite a while. I loved how the trees created a nice backdrop for him and how he was checking me out, too. It’s a new subject for me.
