Hi everyone! Wanted to share my news...I found out last week that an oil pastel painting of mine was accepted into the Oil Pastel Society of Maine's juried exhibition! This will be my first time in a gallery and first time being accepted by a jury so thanks to all my fellow WC'ers for all the helpful comments and critiques and sharing of work over the months - it's really made a huge difference in the quality of my work and is soooo appreciated. The show runs from 7/29-7/31 at the River Tree Center for the Arts in Kennebunk, Maine and will be judged by Anne Gable Allaire, PSA. I'm so nervous! Any tips or info on what to expect would be very appreciated!

Here he is - "American Toad", 20x24 inches, Holbein and Sennelier oil pastels on Fredrix Blue Label stretched canvas. I fixed his strange looking right toe since taking this shot, and luckily the slides came out better than the digital - but this shot's pretty close to real life.
