The Solanco Fair begins today and I have three pieces entered / on exhibit. The Solanco Fair is a huge agricultural based fair in the Southern End of Lancaster County (Quarryville). While pieces cannot be sold there, I am excited about the exposure.
My first piece is of course a mandala! I know, right, you were all surprised! I do love my mandalas. This particular one is entered in the “pen and ink” class. I’m always asked by people if I do these by hand. How else, I think, would I do them! Yes, my mandalas are all done by hand (that is, no computer) and take several hours, sometimes days.
The second piece is a watercolor – my sunflower. This piece was done as a commissioned piece as a cover of a program.
Finally, my skulls. This was a school assignment awhile back and I just had fun with it. These get carried around with me often.
The Fair runs today (Wednesday) through Friday so if you are in the Lancaster area, stop on down the Fair and check it out!

What are your plans Friday, 5 February? Come out to Lancaster’s First Friday, specifically come out to Annex 24 Gallery at 24 W Walnut Street. I will have two pieces on exhibit!
Annex 24 is holding its 3rd Annual Artist Closet Auction. It is a silent auction that coincides with First Friday. It runs 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. You can bid in person, via Twitter or even on Facebook! The Artist Closet is a great opportunity to acquire paintings, drawings, jewelry or sculptures for a reasonable price. Bids start as low as $10.
My first piece is called Patience. It is a mandala that I did while recovering from a concussion. I found the geometric design of a mandala to be very relaxing.
The second is called Skulls. It shows a skull from both a frontal image and from the left side. It is a graphite drawing.
Both pieces are mounted and are framed.
They will be on exhibit, with the rest of the Artist Closet, in the Wowzer Room! The Annex 24 Gallery is located at 24 West Walnut Street, between North Queen and North Market Streets.
