Dusk Sky

Dusk Sky
6 x 12
Available at Panhandle Plains Museum Invitational

Despite being totally obsessed and preoccupied with Lennox Woods at the moment, I've got a couple of small paintings heading out next week to the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum Invitational, which opens on March 3.

This sky was painted from memory, specifically a sky seen while driving from Clarksville to Paris a month or so ago. Here's a detail, which can be clicked on for a larger view.

Autumn Sunrise- Lennox Woods
18 x 24

I am so excited to announce the Lennox Woods Project. Over the next 18 months or so, we will explore and record the pristine beauty and magnificence of the Lennox Woods Preserve in northeast Texas. Underwritten and sponsored by Galerie Kornye West of Ft. Worth, Texas, the project will encompass over fifty works of art- including paintings, drawings, etchings and drypoints-to be be exhibited in multiple venues during 2014 and beyond. A film documenting the project will be shown at the exhibitions and film clips from throughout the project will appear on the project blog over the course of the next year. A full color catalog will be produced which will include a DVD of the project film and other content. The new blog will chronicle the course of the project, recording what happens in the Woods, in the studio and elsewhere in connection with this unique multi disciplinary project.

I hope all my readers here will click on over and follow me at the new blog as well!

Drypoints on Parade

I am happy to say that these two little drypoints will be part of an exhibit at Davis & Blevins Main Street Gallery in St. Jo, TX later this month. The gallery is owned by well known Texas artist Donna Howell Sickles, and I am pleased to have been invited to show.

The theme of the show is Black, White & Limited Palette, so these small works seemed like a good fit.
