Nascar Crash

My semi-abstract painting: "Nascar Crash" (40" x 30") was accepted for inclusion in the August show at the Art League Gallery at Torpedo Factory, Alexandria VA. This is an interesting painting, painted for a show which didn't occur while I was a member of the Max21 group a year or so ago. I have always liked it but didn't have a clear exhibit opportunity until now, the annual "'Scapes — International Landscape show." Art League shows are very competitive. There were over 700 entries for this show. Typically, only about 100 paintings make it in. Juror for the show was Joey Manlapaz. Manlapaz maintains a studio on Capitol Hill and is a faculty member at the Corcoran College of Art and Design.
