It's time for East Colony Fine Art 18th annual Petals2Paint exhibit. Local floral designers team up with the ECFA artists and interpret paintings in flowers and plants. This exhibit is held at Labelle Winery and the opening reception, June 14, 2023 from 5:00-8:00 will feature a wine tasting of Labelle's wonderful wines. Guests are asked to pick their favorite painting/floral pair for the People's choice Award, and there will be raffles of all kinds of wonderful garden and art gifts.This year two of my paintings, Rule of Three and To Dream of Horses have been chosen. I can't wait to see what the floral designers will do with them.
A CHRISTMAS FABLE
This year I was lucky enough to have the chance to illustrate a children's book. It was a dream come true. I had so much fun doing this project, and I learned so much. I hope I have a chance to do another one! As of October 2020 I have a book in hand. The book will be available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble by the end of October. I will be posting updates.
SPECIAL MERIT AWARD
In August my pastel pencil portrait of my sweetheart, Sketch, was juried into the Light, Space, Time Gallery's 10th Animals in Art Exhibit. There were over 1,000 entries so I am thrilled to be included.
