Hi all,

I haven't posted here in a while because I lost interest when there were so many system problems and it would take minutes for every single click, but it looks like they've got us back in good shape now.

Anyway, I entered my first competition, and won! I entered the Paint the Parks Top 100 contest with a composition I did just for the occasion. I didn't want to compete with all of the natural landscape artists that the contest would undoubtedly draw, so I did an architectural/urban composition at the historic old courthouse and arch at the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial.

Here's a direct link to my painting on the PTP site:

What's really cool is that I had no idea that the gallery tour would actually start out in St. Louis at the old courthouse rotunda. Because of this, they chose my painting to advertise the opening and made a big 3 x 4 foot sign out of it that was displayed on the sidewalk.

Congratulations Randy! What a thrill to be on a sign on top of it!

Well deserved.
