I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving!

Great time at the Underground
I'm pleased to share that my painting was awarded the Best in Watermedia at the Artists of Northwest Arkansas 22nd Annual Juried Exhibition. My thanks to the judge Rick Parker and to the many local volunteers who make this exhibit possible. So enjoyed seeing dear friends that I only get to see a couple of times a year. Also got the opportunity to meet other artists whom I had never met before, which is always fun. Wonderful time at the Fayetteville Underground. Back to my brushes.

Catch a flick.
I've added a new documentary review on the 2008 film Annie Leibovitz: Life through a Lens. I've had it for some time and just didn't have a moment to watch it. I am happy to say that I watched the whole film with no interruptions. Probably because everyone else here is sick. I'm the only holdout. Crossed fingers.

How many people can get sick in one household at the same time. One, two-who-o-o, three. Three. Back to my brushes.

Sorry I haven't posted in a bit. I've been busy trying to finish my current painting. It has been fun and challenging but finding the time to work on it uninterrupted has been difficult. I prefer to focus my attention instead of painting a little bit here - a little bit there. I am pleased to report that I have finished, which is the result of a six-day blitz. Hooray! I started it in August. So this evening I put up my feet to spend a relaxing hour or two watching t.v. and enjoy a nice little earthquake. Wait...yes, earthquake with small aftershocks. So maybe something stronger than a coke is in order. Back to my brushes.
