Hidden 330

Hidden, 11"x14", oil on RayMar panel, $200
Painted this from an old photo I found. The town I used to live in was too abundant in painting inspiration and I took a great deal of reference material. Some I painted on location, some, like this, I had to do from photographs.

My First Podium Finish...

Orange Slices, 24"x24", oil on Museum Wrap
However, if this was an automobile race, one would not get a podium finish for 4th place, or as I like to call it, the 3rd looser. Seriously, I was thrilled to have placed in anything and I was honored just to get juried into another show. This one is called The American Still Life: Yesterday and Today, juried by Kevin Grogan from the Morris Museum. The show is up until July 4th at The Bascom in Highlands, NC.
