My Painting Juried into NOAPS Show “Best of America Small Works Exhibition”
I hope you folks near Birmingham will come join me at the Beverly McNeil Gallery, Thursday, April 28th for the opening reception and group exhibition of works of art from all over the country. I have seen the work and I can tell you — it will be a great show! This is sponsored by the National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society.
They are also hosing a two day paint out for all you plein air painters. This should be FUN! I’m excited that a few of my painting buddies are going to this so we will be able to paint and talk all things art!
The painting of mine that was juried into this exhibit is one that I painted plein air but finished in my studio. There were some beehives sitting in the middle of a field near my friend’s cabin in Pittman Center so I asked if I could trespass to paint this. They were happy to let me do it. One of the fun moments was when I heard something behind me. I slowly turned to see what it was (praying it wasn’t a black bear) and was relieved to see a beautiful deer arriving to check out what was going on. She decided to stand in front of the beehives for a minute to eat, looked at me, then moseyed on down to the creek for a drink. It was lovely.
