Richeson75 International art competion

I got "the envelope" on Friday and one of the pieces I submitted for the Small Works show has been accepted! This is so exciting and a great honor to be chosen. The piece they accepted is "Sniffing Winter Air", an 8 x 10" oil. The other piece I submitted was "Afterglow" and it was not accepted for the show but will appear in the printed catalog. The show is at the Jack Richeson School of Art & Gallery in Kimberly, WI. It will also be online.

Art Show at the Dog Show

I got notification today that three of the four pieces I submitted to the Art Show at the Dog Show in Wichita KS have been accepted. Here are the three they liked...
Whippet and Wallpaper is mixed media, watercolor, ink and gold paint. The Antique Chair is watercolor and Proud Sheltie is oil.
I have been spending a lot of time painting as usual and have completed several new things. One so far for the upcoming Canine Art Guild online exhibition, a few new breeds for prints, and a couple more oils of whippets for the upcoming Whippet National Specialty where i will have a booth. They are also having an Art Show there so I have to decide what to put in that!!
Our weather here in NC can't decide what it wants to do, one day cold, one day warm but I guess we are in for a couple real cold ones the next couple days. We have had one significant snowfall this year. At my house it was 6" and it sure was pretty but didn't stick around long. Of course I am not complaining about that at all.
