Last summer, I participated in a 2-day workshop with Ed Cooper, a well-known "plein-air" (outdoor or on-site) painter on an estate in Loudoun county. I painted two fairly good-sized paintings and sold one to the owner of the estate. The other, "Spring House, Nancy's Place" has been acepted in the March show of the Art League of Alexandria at the Torpedo Factory. This is one of the few shows that I regularly enter and it is so competitive that I am always pleased when something is accepted.
