Bike Race, Indie Craft & April Flowers

It's one on my favorite weekends in Athens, Georgia.  Tonight is the big pro-cycling race, The Twilight Criterium!  People will be gathered by the thousands in our vibrant downtown, being merry and feeling the wind from a swoosh of cyclists going by as the racers circle our downtown blocks the distance of 80K.  I think that is nearly 80 laps!  The big race begins at 9p.m.

The other thing happening is The Athens Indie Craftstraveganzaa spring market!  This bi-yearly market of hand-made wares is in its 5th year and it is sure to be a good one.  With nearly 40 vendors, it is an intimately-scaled market with lots of variety.  Check out booths like this one: Rachel Pepper's KiNFLY Design.

And lastly, tomorrow, I will be installing a show of new paintings at one of my favorite places to get a really nice meal, Heirloom Cafe and Market.  The show is titled: "April Flowers."  You can expect to see vibrantly filled canvases of flowers and a few, more abstract surprises.  The show will be up through May 26th.

Oh, and, my website is now updated!  It is re-organized for (hopefully) easier navigation and tighter presentation of my different series of works.  It includes a number of new recent paintings and drawings, such as watercolors, like this one:
