I am announcing this year's "Twelve Days of Christmas" small work offering on Facebook which will commence with the first work being offered at special reduced pricing on Monday, December 8th. I'll do another announcement closer to that date with the time that first piece will be posted to my Facebook art page. As in the past, the first person who contacts me for purchase will be the winner of the offering and this will only be happening on my Facebook page. My art page is a public page, so no need to fear being swallowed up by all that Facebook offers, but it will be the only way you may try for one of the twelve, or maybe thirteen or maybe even fourteen works that will be offered this last time in 2014. You can access the page through the link in the right hand column here.

The final push is on in the studio to complete the last several works for next week's opening of this year's Waterfowl Festival in the lovely eastern shore town of Easton. I'll be there at the Avalon Theater right in the heart of downtown so stop by and say hello. There is plenty to see and do all weekend and lots of spectacular art, sculpture, carving, crafts and sporting goods throughout the various venues spread around town. Check out the listing of exhibitors to find your favorites in the link above and come and enjoy a wonderful fall weekend on Maryland's eastern shore.

Over in Dorset, Great Britain, the drawings have all been framed and are ready to be hung for this coming weekend's opening of Drawn at Sculpture by the Lakes. I'm quite pleased to have my work hanging along side that of the other fine artists included in the show and if you are in the 'neighborhood' this coming Saturday, stop by the Gallery and see some mighty fine work.

Very pleased with yesterday's mail delivery as it contained the December issue of The Artist's Magazine in which I knew they were to announce the winners of this year's annual art competition. I knew several months ago, that my work, Steam Fitters, had been named as an Honorable Mention work but was delighted to see so many artist friends names listed in the 68 (out of just over 1000 entries in the animal category) Finalists and to share the pages with fellow Honorable Mentions, Suzie and Sue. This is the second year a work of mine has been honored this way. I believe the magazine is out for purchase now, pick yourself up a copy to see all the winners and runners up.

November Exhibitions

Lots of events taking place in November other than the Waterfowl Festival on Maryland's beautiful eastern shore, which I am still working on new pieces for. In addition to the November 8th opening of Drawn, which includes five or my works in Dorset, Great Britain at Sculpture by the Lakes on November 7th, the 9th edition of the International Guild of Realism's annual exhibition will open at the Robert Lange Studios in Charleston, South Carolina and include one of my works as well. Later in the month, on the 23rd to be exact, three of my works will be included in this year's art show at the Mountain Oyster Club in Tucson, Arizona. A busy month for art lovers on this side of the Atlantic and the other side as well.

I am pleased to announce the opening of Drawn, an exhibition of works on paper, which will open on November 8th at the tranquil Sculpture by the Lakes in Dorset, Great Britain. My works will join those of a number of other internationally reputed artists for the five week hanging of this show in that most beautiful countryside of southern England. For all my British and European followers, put this on your calendars and plan to see some wonderful work. My thanks to friend and sculptor extraordinaire, Simon Gudgeon, whose marvelous works grace the gardens and grounds, for asking me to be a part of this singular event that will premier the newly developed gallery on the property. For those who may not be able to see the show in person, if you hit the link above, you can download a PDF version of the complete catalog of the show.

Finished this afternoon and ready to head to the framing table to get set aside for the upcoming Waterfowl Festival in a month's short time. This piece measures 9" square. I have lots left to do, so no time to lollygag about. Back to work now . . .
