Brush Strokes Exhibition at Woodlands Auditorium

The annual Brush Strokes art club exhibition at Woodlands Auditorium in Hot Springs Village will be hanging during June, July and August. I took a look at it a few days ago, and was very impressed. The work is all of very high quality, and it is hung nicely, without any crowding. It is very much worth a visit.

I have two paintings hanging in this exhibition. They are both quarter-sheet paintings, and are waterscapes... one with a shrimp boat working in rough seas, and the other a fishing boat docked in a swampy area. I've included their images here.

Gallery Walk Evening

The Hot Springs Gallery Walk on Friday evening, June 1, was a success for me and Sheliah, the featured artists at Artists' Workshop Gallery. We had lots of help, including my wife Jeanette, Millie Steveken, Tony and Amanda Tabone, and Joe and Azelia Efferson, and that was a good thing, because the gallery was very busy. A number of personal friends and previous collectors stopped by. We didn't have much food or drink left at the end of the evening.

I sold three original paintings, including one sold earlier in the day, and several packages of note cards. One of these was Solitude, the largest painting I've yet done (28 x 40" framed). I've included an image of it here. I promised Jeanette I'd paint her another similar painting in the near future, as it was one of her favorites... so, there it is in writing.

Hopefully I'll sell a few more paintings and prints during June, as I have quite a bit of hanging space this month as featured artist.
