I'm pleased to announce that my painting, Still Life with Nest II, was juried into the 15th Annual Masterworks exhibit down in Albuquerque. Above is the postcard from the event, and bottom right is pictured my painting from last year's show, Packing Out. I was happy to see it was included on the advertising for the show. That's cool. This is just a scanned copy of the card, so colors are a bit off.
Here's the details on the show:
Masterworks Fine Art Show
April 6-27 10am-5pm
EXPO, New Mexico, Hispanic Arts Bldg.
Here's this year's accepted entry:
Still Life with Nest II
oil on linen, 15x30
and here's the piece from last year that is featured in the publicity.
Well, I dove right back in to painting after about a 7 month hiatus. The impetus was a juried show here in New Mexico. I did very well at this same show last year, and so I felt it was a good investment of time to
enter again, and hope for the best.
Unfortunately, I mis-read the application information, and ended up with only 3 days to do a painting, and I had to drive 2 hours to hand deliver the entry form in order to get it there in time!
I've painted many of these same elements before. And, because I had such little time, it seemed like a good idea to paint something relatively straightforward and simple.
