There is a new artist at the Workhouse Arts Center at 9601 Ox Road ,Lorton Virginia. Her name is Phoebe Twichell Peterson and she has an upcoming solo show. Her show reception is on March 12, from 6-9 pm.

Please come see this inspired show!

Here is her artist’s statement on this beautiful work…Having grown up in New England much of the imagery in Phoebe’s paintings is inspired by the coastal scenes she so enjoys. Many of the paintings in this small works show are plein air paintings, quick 2 to 4 hour sketches done in oil paint, outside on site. Phoebe feels that working from life allows her to see the colors and light more accurately than working solely from photographs. Plus, it’s fun to paint outside!
