Earlier in the week I met my friend Shelby in her hometown of Washington, DC. What a beautiful city. We went to several art museums--all free--and had a great lunch at a Jose Andres restaurant.
Shelby and I met years ago at a workshop in New Mexico: we sat next to each other then found out we lived across the Delaware Bay from each other. At that time she had a summer place in Lewes, DE, and we got together to paint often. But they sold the house and we don't see each other as often as I wish we did!
These paintings are a couple of years old: the top one is Shelby's granddaughter Elena, and below is her daughter Nadejda.
I thought I had given these to her! Now I have an excuse to go visit again!
