The auction is Thursday, December 1, 6:30 - 9:00 pm, at Norwood Flynn Gallery.

Holiday cards with this and other artists' images can be acquired, with proceeds benefitting the organization, from Dallas Challenge.

"Finalist" in The Artist's Magazine

I've posted this image before, but the December issue of the Artist's Magazine features the winners of their 28th Annual Art Competition. I wasn't one of those, but I was a "Finalist" in the Animal/Wildlife category.
That means my name was listed, but without an image of the painting I submitted. So here it is, "Icons".

An addendum; I learned this Thanksgiving weekend that "Icons" has been sold. So thanks to the buyer and I hope it fits well into its new home.

Wasted energy

Having energy to waste, and wasting it, in a futile effort may be the ultimate vanity. But we never know what might be futile until it we've tried it.

It's 34 days until Beethoven's birthday.
He lived in a world of silence, but created some of the greatest and most important music.
This image has been used by a local Beethoven ensemble for the past several years.

Copper Moon Gallery, Taos, NM

I'm happy to report that my work is now represented in one of my favorite places, Taos, New Mexico. The new Copper Moon Gallery on Kit Carson Road, near the Plaza, shows my paintings. Other artists include metal sculptor Tom Wheeler and paper artist Ed Morgan, among others. If you're in the area, check it out.
Sorry, I don't presently know the name of the designer of the gallery logo, pictured above, but when I learn that I'll give him/her credit.
