Sneak Preview of
WHERE JEFFERSON ONCE STOOD
Original Plein Air Oil Painting

exhibit entitled 'Hallowed Grounds, En Plein Air'.

West Virginia. I was painting with fellow artists Deb Richardson
and Linda Young, and we had quite an experience hiking down

Mountains and the confluence of the Shenandoah and
