The Torpedo Factory

This is a collage of the Torpedo Factory, which is a well known art gallery/artist studio community in Old Town. I'm thinking about making two more collages in this series. Then it'll be back to working on art for the festival, and perhaps even working on another portrait.

In other news, the Alexandria Times published a little blurb about my work being exhibited in the Smithsonian's Ripley Center, which I discovered today although it was published a month ago. The exhibition ended yesterday and I'll pick up my piece later this week.

Also, thanks for everyone's feedback about Etsy. I'm going to work on figuring out the best way to go about getting prints of my work before opening an account. And whenever I do get started with Etsy, I'll post about it.
