First Place in Diamond Exhibit

Yesterday evening I was awarded the First Place Purchase Award in the Watercolor category of the Diamond National Juried Exhibit for my painting Lake House. I was surprised and honored, as the quality of the paintings in this exhibition is very high. Thanks to everyone who worked to make the exhibition a success, and especially to judge Marlene Gremillion, president of Mid-Southern Watercolorists and an accomplished artist and art teacher.

The award was $750, with my painting going into the permanent collection of the Fine Arts Center of Hot Springs. I'm very excited about having one of my paintings on continual exhibition at the Fine Arts Center.

Featured Artist at Mountain Valley Spring Company

John Keller and I will be featured artists at Mountain Valley Spring Company, 150 Central Avenue, Hot Springs, Arkansas, 71901, for the months of September and October. Please join us at our opening reception during gallery walk on Friday, September 7, at 5 pm. Mountain Valley has a beautiful art venue on the mezzanine level overlooking the main floor. There is free parking during gallery walk in the lot on the north side of the building.

I will have a large number of paintings on display, including many new paintings, some nicely framed prints of barns and Hot Springs bathhouses, and a good selection of unframed original paintings, prints, and note cards. I hope to welcome many friends, both old and new, this Friday evening.
