Art Spaces in Beautiful Places

A Summer-time Lake Anne painting inspired by Sweet Memories Photography... Luisa of Aziul Art in Reston, VA reached out this Summer and asked for an inspirational photo of a special spot in Reston.  Lake Anne is home to a unique group of independently owned shops and restaurants.  It is one of the more historical Reston centers and hosts everything from weekend farmer's markets to a new brewery! 

I took an afternoon and went to the lake for some fresh photos through the crowds, and sent my favorites to Luisa. She picked her favorite and referenced it on her phone as she did a live painting right there by the lake! She then used her creation to teach a group at the Cork and Canvas Event (wine and painting class) this Summer!

It was such a blast being able to collaborate with this amazing artist and to see one of my photos become a new masterpiece for her students to take home and enjoy!

Of course, I took the class as well so I could have an original!
