Finding Beauty in Simple Things

Christopher Engnoth is a talented Alexandria artist as well as the art director at my shop, Mindful Hands, and my life partner. So I’m a little biased when I say his landscapes of the Potomac River and surrounding environs are quite breath-taking. The image here is of Chris’ watercolor, “Frozen Potomac.” His interest in nature and water was sparked by his childhood on the Chesapeake Bay. He says of his art, “I hope that my paintings can bring some measure of peace and joy to those who, like me, can appreciate the beauty in simple things.”


  • I’ve been a fan of Chris’ artwork for years! Thank you for bringing his work to a wider audience.


  • I like Chis’ artwork. Where else is it on display?


  • Thank you for your comments! Chris’ artwork can be seen at Mindful Hands in Old Town Alexandria, VA. He also periodically exhibits at various art shows around the country, including the Arts on the Avenue festival in Alexandria, and the Neptune and Boardwalk art festivals in Virginia Beach.You can also view Chris’ artwork online at his website,
