2009 Oil Painters of America Eastern Regional Juried Exhibition

I was drinking my coffee and watching the news this morning and then realized that today was the day that acceptance notifications would be sent for the Oil Painters of America Eastern Regional Show. Connie and I turned on the computer and impatiently waited for it to boot up so we could get to the email. Sure enough there was an email but I had to go to Juried Art Services website to get the results. When I got to my entry page there was a green check mark beside my Peeled Orange entry. I was just overwhelmed. I am so honored to have been selected to display my work in this show.
I know I posted this painting in my April blog but I felt I should post it again.

Georgia National Fair

This is one of the two pieces that I had accepted into the Georgia National Fair in Perry, Ga. I'll be delivering them Friday and the exhibit will run from October 8th through the 18th. I had good luck there last year with a purchase award. Hope I can fare as well this year. It is a great venue to display art.
