Is Pennsylvania in da house??!! Why yes it is, and it’s naked baby! I received a delightful email from my artist friend Tai Lin in which he shared a bit of terrific news. His painting of me, titled Awakening, is among the works on view in the 6th Annual “Naked in New Hope” art exhibition! The group show at New Hope Sidetracks Art Gallery includes local artists from Bucks County and artists from all across the nation. A wide range of media are represented, from oils and acrylics to pencil and charcoal to etchings, pastel, watercolor, sculpture, and collage.
This is Tai’s painting of me. Created a few years ago at the National Academy in Sharon Sprung’s class, I remember it like it was yesterday. In fact, I own the small study that Tai did as practice for his final piece. It hangs on my living room wall and inspires compliments from everyone who enters.

And a fellow WordPress blogger, artist Chris Carter, will also be exhibiting in the show. See Chris’ blog entry here.
“Naked in New Hope” opens Saturday night, September 15th with a gala reception and runs through November 3rd. Here’s the listing in Fine Art America. Congratulations Tai! So proud of you, friend
