I wanted to show a recent painting . . . but I don't have many on the lap top . . . so I saved an image from my gallery in Blue Ridge -- High Country Art. So, if you are in Blue Ridge, please go by and see the real thing. It looks much better in real life.

Well . . . so here is a painting that is in my gallery in Blue Ridge, GA. The painting is two canvases that are four feet high by three feet wide -- which makes the painting a six foot painting. It was entered into a show called "BIG" last fall in Buford, GA at the Tannery Row Artist Colony. And . . . it won Best in Show!
I paint mostly in pastel, but this last year I have painted quite a few painting using my acrylics. A few oils along the way -- but this painting is an acrylic and has a very high gloss finish and was quite difficult to photograph!

Been away from the computer!

So sorry for not getting something posted in the last week or more. Sometimes the days are too busy with teaching classes, delivering artwork, attending receptions, helping an organization . . . you probably get the point!

We have a new organization in Blue Ridge, GA -- The Southern Appalachian Artist Guild -- under the umbrella of the Blue Ridge Mountains Arts Association. We held a reception for the first member show on Saturday at the Gilmer Arts and Heritage Association in Ellijay, GA. The show will be up until April 24. There is both 2D and 3D artwork in this show. It looks wonderful. We even sold about 5 or 6 piece the evening of the show. Great!

I'll try to post a picture of a new painting either today or tomorrow. Come back!
