A Show and a Sale

My Other Car Is a Jaguar, acrylic/collage, 36 x 24
by Elizabeth W. Seaver

I am pleased that this painting  was selected for a show of work by Maryland, DC and Virginia artists in February at the Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts.


Wild Flowers, oil, 8 x 10, Elizabeth W. Seaver

And this painting sold yesterday to a nice lady in a state that shall remain nameless in a top secret sale.  Thank you, nice lady.

In other news, it is snowing, and really cold for Virginia.  I will keep my shoes on for the next little while for sure.  Painting has slowed down some, and I am cut off from my main studio over the weekend, unless we just don't get that much snow.  I don't drive in the stuff.

Welcome to my newest followers!

Cathyann, it was great to meet your husband and to get a chance to chat yesterday. I'm so glad you stopped by LibertyTown while in the 'Burg. Your new little paintings are great, and I look forward to seeing more of them.

Im so glad the giraffe was chosen. I really love that painting and have always expected great things for him (her?) Guess you ARE snowed in today eh? Stay warm!

Thanks for your support, Anna! Yes, we do have snow..."snow on snow on snow!" (as the song goes.)

Thanks, Gwen. I appreciate the comments.

Congratulations on the sale and being accepted into the FCCA's February show. Our artwork will be crossing paths. (I had a piece hanging there this month in the Small Works show.) Good luck in the show! -Don

Kerri Settle said...

Congratulations on the show and the sale! I loveMy Other Car Is a Jaguar! I'm getting a kick out of those expressions, like it's an every-day thing for a bird to chill on a giraffe's head.

Elizabeth Seaver said...

Hey, Don! Wow, that was a great show; you should be pleased to have had work accepted. I wish I'd known to look for your work.

I'm glad you like them, Lettuce. I certainly enjoyed seeing your blog.

Hi, Kerri. Much of the time, my work is meant to provoke a giggle. Thanks for stopping by!
