"Shades" accepted for exhibition

The Carnegie Visual Arts Center in Decatur, Alabama has accepted this piece to exhibit and be juried as a part of their Embracing Art VI. It will be on display from May 16th until June 14th at the Carnegie. This was my first attempt at entering my art into anything and I am thrilled to have this piece accepted!

New Orleans Street Band

Yes, finally I can post another painting! I enjoyed painting this one - lots of detail. The canvas is missing the usual texture. I missed it, I really love the effect the texture has on the finished painting.

Alyson B. Stanfield,

Recently, Alyson answered a question I had for her regarding what constitutes a "show" of paintings. I am grateful for her answer. If you get a moment, visit her site. It has been an inspiration to follow and keep me on track with my goals! She also posted one of my paintings on her blog - Buffalo#2.
Also look for her new book I'd Rather Be In The Studio! - which you can find on her site or at
Thanks Alyson!
