Dropped by Susan Calloway Fine Arts over the weekend and caught the lively action of the annual French Market, outdoors along the sidewalks of Georgetown’s Book Hill neighborhood.  Good food, shopping bargains, and musicians right at Susan’s doorstep.  Ran into friend and fabulous jazz bassist Bhagwan Khalsa who was playing with a group across Wisconsin Avenue.

I had just begun this artwork and was affected by the vibrancy of the street to return to the studio to crank up the color quotient.  The results speak volumes.  Neutrals always make  colors next to them stand out, and that’s the case here, although orange and magenta are pretty bold no matter what’s next to them.  Can you discern a fondness for orange…

This artwork will form part of my solo exhibit at Susan Calloway in September 2015.
