So much to update...

It has been 6 months since I updated, better get crackin'!
First off, Birds in Art update:   The painting in the last post, 'Gulf Surf, Winter' was selected to be included in the show this year. I went to the Birds in Art weekend festivities and had a marvelous time as always, catching up with friends I only see once a year (at most).
The painting will go on the 6-venue tour when the exhibition closes at Leigh Yawkey Woodson art museum.   The bigger news is, when the tour ends the painting returns to the museum as part of the permanent collection, courtesy of generous memorial gift in memory of a long-time museum supporter.

Part of the summer was devoted to preparing for Pembroke Welsh corgi nationals, with 3 new paintings.

Also prepared for gallery receptions including the McBride Gallery annual 'Autumn Celebration' show the last weekend of October, which had me as the feature artist this year.
