Southwest Artist Magazine

I guess my technical limitations are showing!  I thought I posted this late summer and  now am not finding it on any of my sites...  maybe a kick back because of the pdf file?  Not sure...

For those who subscribe to the Southwest Artist Magazine... I was selected to be featured in their "Artist to Watch" article of the November 2013 issue.   I wasn't successful at posting the pdf of the article on  my sites.  so, I've posted a jpeg file here so those who may not have had a chance to see it can read it.  Southwest Artist Sr Editor Bonnie Gangelhoff did an amazing job at making me look good...:).  Thanks Bonnie!

Additionally, I was  interviewed by Lindsay Mitchell as one of 30 finalist of the Artist Magazine Annual Art Competition for the Southwest Artist January 2014 issue which will be on the newsstands December 24th.   I can't begin to tell you how honored I am of this recognition.    I'll post it as soon as i receive the go ahead.  

Green Apples and Cinnamon Sticks

This is one of my recent paintings...  couldn't resist the vintage colander I used in Eggs an Enamel so decided to stage it with apples and a berry pail.  Started to name this one Spiced apples but have decided to let the painting speak for itself...:)

I've completed several other paintings in the past  month and will post those later...  Thanks for stopping by...

Wow! Another blessing!

This one was tucked away in my spam folder!  One of my pieces was selected to be a finalist in The Artist Magazine 30th annual national competition!  I am honored to have one of my pieces to be chosen among so many talented artists works!  There were over 6000 entries this year.  Can't begin to express my excitement when I  found out!  Here's the special seal I may post as a finalist.  The website for The Artist Magazine is posted too.  They offer wonderful articles when you sign up for their newsletters.
