Take Me to the River

Field Flow 3, Oil on Canvas 16" x 20"

A lot has been happening over the past three weeks.  I will fill in more of the details over the next few entries.

I am busy today getting all the final details nailed down for a three day Watercolor workshop (I anticipate getting in some Plein Air painting time as well). This workshop will be similar in some respects to the workshop conducted last week in Rockford. Last weeks sessions went smooth.  The students were able to connect and relate the morning exercises and my demonstrations and proceeded to create some nice works of art on their own. Nice to see when it all comes together.

Earlier this month, I received news that my Oil painting, Field Flow 3, was  awarded Second Place at the Take Me to the River Regional Competition. The exhibition is on display at The Next Picture Show in Dixon Illinois (www.TheNextPictureShow.org) through July 6. The judge of the competition gave the following statement at the awards ceremony; “This piece is so beautiful. It is such a simple yet strong composition. The gradation of colors is spot on. The extremely fine brush work is definitely worth complimenting. I appreciate the steady hand. Very nice presentation.”
