I'm pleased to share that my painting "Losing Traction" has been accepted in the Arkansas Territory Bicentennial Art Exhibition which will tour the states of Arkansas and Oklahoma during 2019 and 2020. This exhibition celebrates, through the medium of fine art, 200 years of history of the geographical area referred to as the Arkansas Territory of 1819. I hope that you will be able to see the exhibit at one of the locations listed on my Events page.
Starting the year off right, I have read a few books (postponing some earlier picks) starting with Rivals by Sebastian Smee, Broad Strokes by Bridget Quinn (a reread) , Seven Days in the Art World by Sarah Thornton, and rounding it out with a nice little mystery. My stack of reading continues to grow and I have even received some books from friends, which is always nice and appreciated. And I continue to paint on my latest work. Both the last piece I finished (on its way to Italy) and this current piece have been different and educational. A time vortex to be sure, but fun and invigorating.
I will add that I am finally getting better health wise. I have been sick (except for a couple of weeks) since November. So it has really been a difficult winter for me. With improved health, things are looking up! Back to my brushes.
