I'm honored to announce that the painting above, Summer Fruits, was a finalist in the Fine Art Studio Online contest for July. It also received the FAV15% nod. There are usually about 800-900 entries from all over the place, so it's very gratifying to be included in the finalists.

I've been making the rounds of some of the grandkids and having a wonderful time. I have a brand new baby grandson, David, and he is sure a cutie. No photos till I get home and can download them to the desktop.
David makes #7 grandchild, and #8 is on the way. I was able to visit with a few friends in New Hampshire last week while I was there with the two oldest granddaughters - not nearly enough time. It sure felt like home there, and I do miss it, and my friends, terribly.
A couple of more days here in Texas and I'll be headed home to New Mexico, and hopefully will get busy painting again.
