A nice honor...

I thought I'd share with you a nice honor I received today. I was asked to donate work to the Capitol Art Collection here in New Mexico. They selected this painting for inclusion:



It's called Scent of Rain, and I think I showed it here at one point... It's on Wallis and is 12 x 18". One really nice part is that they will do the archival framing, so there was no cost to me but the paper, pastel and time. It will decorate the Capitol building.

Nice!

Deborah

Congratulations on a beautiful piece of work AND quite the honor. But then, with your gorgeous work I'm not surprised. I'm so excited for you!

Thanks gang...now you can drop by the Capitol and see it the next time you're in New Mexico. They actually do tours of the art collection there.
