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 . . .

Today's efforts.

Something's been taking shape on the drawing board the last couple days.

Tuesday, October 07, 2014

Fresh off the drawing board, this new work will head to McBride Gallery in Annapolis, MD shortly for the October 19th opening of the Autumn Celebration of Art show. Other new works to come off the board during the next month will head to Easton, MD for this year's Waterfowl Festival in that lovely, historic eastern shore town. Busy time in the studio!

As astute observers may have already noted, by way of the added listing (to the right) of volume 6 in the ongoing series of publications by North Light Books in their Strokes of Genius: The Best of Drawing offerings, the latest edition will be available within the next several weeks for order/purchase. Once again, I am honored to have work included in this marvelous collection of drawings from artists across the globe. With this volume, I have had works included in the last five books of the series and have recently been informed that next year's publication of volume 7 will also contain one of my works as well. You may check out Amazon or the North Light Bookshop or even better, check your local book seller (we all want to support local businesses, don't we?).
