1st in the Glen Show!

I attended the lovely opening reception for Glen Helen's 50th Anniversary Art Exhibit and Sale last night (7/2/10). I saw old friends and met new, enjoyed food, wine and music - and won First Place! I'm thrilled, especially since painting from observation is fairly new to me and I had a lot of great competition. Thank you Glen Helen - for everything!

Here (on the left) is a photo I made of one of the 3 paintings I have in the exhibit, titled, "Uphill Trail." It's a 12" x 9" oil on canvas panel and it's the one the jurors liked best. The Glen show will be up through Friday, July 16.

P.S. I also just learned that the Glen has accepted one of my photographs for their wall calendar - it's the one on the left, titled, "Fern Garden." Thanks again, Glen!
