I'm thrilled to share that my piece "Low Tide" won an award at this year's CCAL Juried Show. This is the first time I was brave enough to enter the Masters category (versus Amateur) so I wasn't expecting to receive an award this year. Love that the jurors felt it deserved this honor. Thank you to Chris Groves for selecting my art for this award! And, thank you to Jaime Bohnke with S&S Destination Trucky's for sponsoring the award!

Ahhh, the State Fair... Good times: deliciously unhealthy food, crowds, livestock, rides and... ART!
I'm happy to say that two of my recent works have been juried in for the 2017 SC State Fair Fine Art Competition. What the heck does "juried in" mean?

Art works which are not deemed appropriate or worthy are "j...
I started this one before hurricane season began to really batter us this year. It's a scene from Abacos Island in the Bahamas. The devastation wrought by the terrible storms this year make my heart hurt for all the people and beautiful areas throughout the Caribbean and Florida. This painting recalls happier times.
My thanks to Kymberlee Edwards MacKay who photographed the original scene I used as inspiration for this piece. She generously shared her image and granted unrestricted use for it as reference. Thanks Kymberlee!
I'm excited to have another chance for my artwork to be on display. Michael's Cafe at 1620 Main Street in downtown Columbia will be featuring an art show now through August 2, 2017. The show, "Says Summer", includes a collection of summery artwork from a number of local artists. I'm very grateful to have been invited to include one of my pieces, a print of "Serenity". Many of the works are for sale as well as display so check it out - you just might find a piece you love (and get something good to eat as well).
