Paintings on display through April 26
Yes, I received "Honorable Mentions" in the Paint Out I attended last week. I'm thrilled, all the artist's artworks were just beautifully done, all the artists were fantastic. Our juror was Ellen Simak, Chief Curator of the Hunter's Museum of American Art in Chattanooga. I received an email but I don't know which painting Ms. Simak picked for the honorable mentions. I will say this, I feel very honored to have been recognized. I had a wonderful time at the Shurptrine's Scenic City Paint Out and it got even better with this news. I turned in three but I only have photos of two of my paintings. The paintings will be on display until the Friday, April 26th at Shurptrine's Gold Leaf Gallery on 2646 Board St., Chattanooga. The paintings are for sale and a portion of the sales will go to Reflections Riding Nature Center and the Hunter's Museum of Art both in Chattanooga.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
