Paint the Parks Art Show

I also received a Certificate of Merit art award in the mail on Saturday, from the Paint the Parks national competition. So now I am an "award" winning artist! Here is the oil painting, "El Dorado":

A Walk in the Woods

This piece, "A Walk in the Woods", is the piece that sold over the weekend. It is very small, 5x7". There were only a few watercolors in the show, which actually made it stand out.

"Enduring Beauty"-Art Show- California Art Club

I have a piece entered in the art show "Enduring Beauty" at the Women's Club of Pasadena. This show is sponsored by the California Art Club. The show opened with a reception on Saturday, 7/12/08, 5-7 pm. The show runs until December 2008, and the hours are 10 am-4pm, Monday through Friday. The address is: 160 N. Oakland Ave, Pasadena, CA 91501.

Thanks to the folks who came out to the reception, your support is greatly appreciated.

It was exciting, as my piece was the first one to sell during the reception. The buyer was very excited to be buying original art, and to be able to meet the artist.

This was a great show, as they use professional hanging service, there is a hosted bar and hors d'oevres, and a dinner/show following the art reception. It was a very nice event!
