Exciting News...

Sanctuary - Selected by Dallas Arboretum Jurors
for the DeGolyer House September 2008 Show
MayFlower Paintout

I just received some wonderful news! The Dallas Arboretum jurors have selected two of my paintings for the September Art Show at the DeGolyer House. Sanctuary and Splash were selected and will be on display during the month of September as part of the Arboretum's MayFlower Paintout Show.

A total of 35 artists submitted works they created during the MayFlower Paintout for potential selection in the show. If you had occasion to be in the gardens in May, you might have seen an artist or two set up on-site dabbling away with their paints in the sunshine. We were required to begin our paintings on the Arboretum grounds during the month of May. This was my first time to paint plein air (well, except for the day my artist friend Judy let me paint in her front yard and we fed her doggy assistant Stella popcorn and met the neighbor doggies, but that's another story...). This is also the first time I have ever had work accepted into a juried show. I hope if you're in the Dallas area in September, you'll stop by and see the show. I can hardly wait...
