A friend of mine stopped by with a gift the other day. In their hand was a handful of old piano sheet music that had been destined for the burn pile. It was just a grabbed handful, but I had to share these gems that turned up in the stack. I'll keep them in mind and try to keep a bright boogie woogie tempo. Back to my brushes.

I'm pleased to share that my paintings received two awards at the Artists of Northwest Arkansas 23rd Annual Juried Exhibit. I received the Max & Lydia Mahler Award for Best in Watercolor and a Merit Award. My thanks to all the judges and a big thank you to all those who could volunteer their time putting together the event. A special thank you to Gary for all his hard work. Also my sincerest thanks to those who sponsored all the awards. All of the artists appreciate your recognition of the arts community in Northwest Arkansas. And a special shout out to Max & Lydia Mahler, Strathmore Paper, Scott Frame & Art, M. Graham Watercolors, Dick Blick, and Legion Paper. Back to my brushes.
