Liquid Sunshine

Finally, after six weeks of interruptions, I have finished the latest in my bee series. This bee is feasting on the blossoms of a miniature palm tree. I never realized palm trees had flowers. Liquid Sunshine is 24" x 30"w oil on gallery-wrap canvas.

Joshua Tree Bee accepted in Oil Painters of America Exhibition

Joshua Tree Bee, 24 x 30" oil on canvas was accepted in the 2010 OPA Western Regional exhibition. The show runs from Oct 9 - Nov 10 at the Mountain Trails Gallery in Jackson Hole WY. I'm on cloud 10. I was a little worried because I had entered both the lady bug and the bee in two competitions. Lady's Day got in the Paint the Parks and this one got in OPA. I don't know what I would have done if both competitions had wanted the same painting. What luck! In addition to these great events, I sold a large watercolor that a lady had seen way back in January, I sold 5 minis on eBay and I picked up a greeting card account. Our local National Monument Visitors Center is carrying an assortment of 15 of my images depicting local scenes, which include watercolors, oils and photographs. It is not consignment. They buy them outright. Make that cloud 11.
