Honorable Mention at latest Show
I just returned from the 2011 Bath County Juried Fine Arts Show with an Honorable Mention for one of my new works. The Show was held July 16 - 24, 2011 and out of the 700+ entrants, I was one of only 24 to receive an Honorable Mention. The Judge who awarded my Oil painting titled Jackson River, is named Erich Keel of the Kreeger Museum in Washington, D.C. I feel so fortunate to be recognized by such an esteemed Judge and organization! Bath County is such a beautiful area and is only a few hours north of my home in Southwest Virginia. I am blessed to have such an abundance of natural beauty right at my fingertips! On the drive to and from the show, my view from the passenger's window exposed me to some of the most gorgeous trees and skylines and now i am overflowing with inspiration! I actually had to revert to sketching the scenic drive, because I couldn't keep the art inside! They should have new warnings on the smart phones - no sketching while driving!

Thanks for tuning in, I am still pretty new to this whole art world, stay tuned for updates on my next few shows of the summer.

Happy Painting :)
