Flags and Fog-sold

Oil on canvas, 11" x 14"
We drove down to Philadelphia this weekend to drop work off for a show at the F.A.N. Gallery for their "New Talent" show opening Friday, August 6. It's not a big gallery, but it's in a great location, a block away from the Betsy Ross house, so if you've been dying to see historic Philly and do some gallery hopping too, now's the time! This is one of my paintings that will be in the show. Stop in and see Betsy, she'll tell you why she told George Washington that the stars on the flag should have 5 points, no more or less.

Great job on the soft edges and I like the composition. I was in Philadelphia a few weeks ago and this street scene looks very familiar. Love it!
