Thought I'd share...

As many of you may know, I've been doing art festivals and fairs for the past year. However, I've only entered two juried exhibitions. Didn't make the first one, but I have made it into the second one. This piece has been accepted into the Plano Art Association's 125 show. The show runs from April 12 to May 4 at the Collin College Art Gallery, Plano, Texas. I am very pleased.

"Reflections" ~ 9x12, Gouache

Ralph,
Congrats....you deserve it
I really like the foliage on the left hand side as the darks really give the viewer a feeling of looking up into and being part of the undergrowth of trees.

Wonderful, Ralph! This painting is sooooooo placid and lovely.

Okay, now I'm rooting for a PRIZE for you, too.

Re: Thought I'd share...

Boy, time is flying by! Too much going on right now, so I apologize for not keeping up.

Thanks Deborah. It would be nice, but it all depends on the judge, I guess.

Wow, Hugo... that's a big compliment, and not one I can live up to. But I do appreciate it.
