This weekend, December 18th and 19th, I will be in the Gallery in the original Ellicott Theater in Historic Ellicott City, MD. I’ll be bringing my new book which documents the creation of all fifty paintings that were done to mark the upcoming 250th birthday of the town. Also, I’ll have a couple of the framed paintings with me to give a preview of the upcoming show featuring all fifty paintings.
