News - International Show



12x16 Acrylic on Paper
Collection of the Artist

I'm happy to announce that this piece, "The View from the Top," met with the juror's approval and has gained entry into the annual International Show at the Watercolor Art Society of Houston.

The exhibit opening and judging takes place on the 19th of March, with the artist's reception and awards presentation scheduled for March 24th from 6-8 PM. I will most certainly be in attendance.

The exhibit is open to the public March 19 - April 15, 2011. For more information, please visit WASH's website here.

Courtade Residence Revisited


11x14 Acrylic on Panel
SOLD

Several years ago I took a few photographs of a friend's house in New Orleans. A nice painting resulted (click here to see the 2007 version). I've always liked the way it turned out, so I decided to use the same reference for my third International Show candidate.

Palo Duro Canyon


16x20 Acrylic on Paper
Collection of the Artist

We were lucky enough to sleep on the floor of this vast canyon late last year. Coyotes cackled and howled, spiders crawled, storms rolled in overhead...stars everywhere...

This is the second entry for the International Show at WASH...fingers crossed.

The View From the Top


12x16 Acrylic on Paper
Collection of the Artist

The annual International Show at the Watercolor Art Society of Houston is fast approaching. I have submitted three pieces with the hope that one of them will be selected for inclusion in the show. This is the first piece. I'll post the rest soon, and let you know if any of them make it.
