Well, the FLADELFYA 4 weren’t quite ready for prime time.  We still think we had a fabulous idea for the installation, of course, but obviously the jurors whoever they were did not agree.  Bummer, but life goes on.

I’m working with the same three other fabulous artists to prepare for the Philadelphia Open Studios Tour on October 1 & 2.  We’re going to share space here at the Community Room of the William Penn House (1919 Chestnut Street in Philadelphia) to show together.  Here’s our poster – we-re having some 1000 postcards printed that we can leave around the city to advertise it.  Consider this your invitation to come – and to make it interesting, Chick Kelly and I plan to paint portraits on the spot, during the show.  I’ve been working to see just how I want to do that.  Ain’t easy to get something worthwhile in – hopefully – the first 30 minutes of painting!
