My Painting "Sparkle" accepted in OPA National Exhibit
I just learned this morning that my painting "Sparkle" was accepted into the Oil Painters of America 22nd Annual National Juried Exhibition at the InSight Gallery in Fredericksburg Texas - May 17 - June 17 2013.
Sparkle - Oil on Linen - 20" x 24"
This really made my day, week and month!!! Im really excited and look forward to attending the Opening in May.
As an artist raised in the Midwest, the natural beauty of the coastal shoreline has always intrigued and amazed me. I particularly liked the subject matter and the effect of the light, which enhanced the colors, creating unique and interesting reflections and shadows. I strive to blend the fine nuances of color, texture and shapes to create an image that draws the viewer to a pleasant experience. As I continue to paint and continue to grow, I find landscape painting a real challenge as well as a great joy. I use linen canvas on boards or stretched, using professional grade oil paints. My body of work is composed of both Studio and Plein Air paintings
