It never hurts to get a "thumbs up" for one's art, right? The Bold Brush Painting Competition for September sponsored by FASO is the first national contest I have entered...ever. And what do you know? The painting "Sweet Escape"(above) was chosen in the category of "Outstanding Pastel" which made for a nice day. Thanks, FASO.

Finally, I had the opportunity to work on a still life piece that had been calling my name. I'm still not completely settled on a title, but someone suggested "Three Amigos" and so far it's my favorite. This oil on canvas painting measuring 30" X 24" will soon be available at Ober Anderson Gallery in Kirkwood, Missouri. I invite you to come in and see it in person. The live version has a different impact from the smaller online image.
