2010 National OPA Exhibition

Well, as you can see I have been too busy to post anything for awhile so hopefully this will suffice. I just got news that my submission 'Lavish Light' - 12x16 - oil painting was accepted into the 19th annual Oil Painters of America National Exhibition. The show will be held at the top notch Legacy Gallery in Scottsdale, AZ from April 30th - May 31. This year there were 2,560 works submitted and narrowed down to 200, so I feel very fortunate. I may even consider attending if I can find the time. The painting is of an area in Utah that happens to be my brothers favorite secret fly fishing place. I did several plein air sketches in the area and it was quite the experience because I had to pack in all my gear several miles and then stand in the blistering heat working while my brothers enjoyed the day on the stream. Those of you who know me know that I would never have it any other way and fishing is boring anyway!! ha. I hope to visit the area again but the next time I will rent a lama to haul everything in!!
