Hi All, As some of you know i have been real busy the past few weeks. I was the featured Artist at the Okefenokee Heritage Center (Museum) In Waycross GA. The reception was last night. There was two artist one did hiend collectorbles figures and mine were all paintings some Oil, some Acrylics but mostly S pastels. (some pic's to come) and I was Juryed in to two other gallerys. One in Darien GA and one in Jacksonville Beach FL. So i had lots of paintings to get ready for them all. Mostly the OHC where they used 40 plus paintings. I got into there local paper last night somewhat. and i'm told they put a Mag. out and i will be in it also, maybe around Oct. so i'm adding some of the pic's from the reception just before it really started. thanks for looking.



As you could see i got all the wall space. here is some going down the hall a bit.


Here i am with the other artist could you tell which one is who?


one of the prices cards wasn't on this one a friend pointed out to me.

Now you know which one is me.


Now here i am one more time. Paula put a pic in the challenge that i thought was very close to this piece i'm standing by. that i did a few months ago.



Thanks for looking everyone.

Hi Pete,

Way to go! Featured artist, 2 galleries, newspaper & a mag. Not to mention a beautiful show/display of your work. Now that is what I call getting noticed. Congrats, well deserved.

Pete, how splendid! The paintings look great together. (Smart hanging system, looks much better than the usual 'fishing lines' where the paintings dangle whimsically on hooks that glide down...)

And you look great, and *so* like one of my local friends it is spooky! You have an identical twin in Sweden, only he's cut his hair nowadays.

Pete, how awsome that must feel to see your paintings hanging in galleries and also seeing people enjoying them. I can only imagine. Congratulations to you.

Howdy, Ol Pete, you ought to feel mighty proud. It just seems to me that you have grown by leaps and bounds these past couple of years. You've not only endeavored to learn more and become a better artist, you have made it your business to become a big part of the local scene and do a lot of worthwhile promotion of yourself and art in general for your area. You're setting a good example for us all. Thanks for your efforts in making these gallery photos available to us. Hope we get an update on it all. Dan and Judith

Congratulations on the show and the new galleries and the press! Wow! i'd say July is a good month for you:)

You are doing great and I love the paintings. You have come a long way in just the time i have known you here on WC. And I think the biggest thing is just doing the work. You keep painting up a storm and getting better everyday!

Take care,
