New Painting

This painting, July 5 - Prickett's Creek, is another 24 x 20" work. I struggled a bit with it, but it turned out better than I first thought. It's on display at Gallery 62 West in Grafton, WV, along with the rest of the work for my solo show (I know, I know, still wet - yikes!). The reception was this Saturday and went very well, good turnout and good questions at the talk. Thanks to everyone at Gallery 62! The work will be exhibited until the end of July.

Emerging Artists Reception

Prickett's Creek - February 7th , oil on canvas. 16x14"

Last Thursday night, I was fortunate enough to have been awarded Best of Show at the Emerging Artists of West Virginia exhibit for Prickett's Creek - February 7th. I am completely thrilled - it's a purchase award, so the winning piece has become part of the West Virginia State Museum's collection. I'm still in a slight state of disbelief! So one more big Thank you! to juror Allison Smith and everyone at the Cultural Center.
The reception was really nice, I enjoyed the slide jam - all the artists did a fantastic job presenting. I admire their public speaking skills, I wish I had them! Congratulations again to all the selected artists and prize winners, especially second place winner Derek Overfield (!
Also, Saturday July 11th is definitely the date for my reception at Gallery 62 West - from 6-9 pm!
