Awards at Sedona Arts Center!

When Michelle and I arrived at the opening reception for the Sedona Arts Center Juried Members Exhibit last Friday I noticed a little gold titled plate next to my Sierra painting titled View from the Pass (see previous post and here). It won first place in oils! A nice honored to be singled out in a show full of great art. A few glasses of wine later at the award ceremony I find out the painting has won the best of show award! Thanks to all the great employees and voluteers at the Sedona Arts Center! The show runs to March 29th.

Grand Canyon!

If you've been paying attention to this blog, you may have noticed that some time ago I put a link in the sidebar to this years Grand Canyon Celebration of Art Plein Air on the Rim. It's there because I've been invited to participate in this years exhibition! I waited a while to mention it for a couple of reasons. First off, I wasn't sure it was real, and second I wanted to post the painting I will have in the studio portion of the event. I decided to take photos of how I painted it. The last shot is pretty much the finished painting (I took more shots, email me if you'd like to see them) I have been up to paint the Canyon a few times this winter, so a snow scene seemed appropriate.
