Caution Wet Paint

I've been busy working on this large floral, "Just Glorious" 48" x 60" oil on canvas. And, I've been working on my article for International Artist Magazine. It's so much more work than you might imagine. I've finally finished it and will be sending off the piece to the magazine this week. Have no idea when they will publish it. The earliest it could be is February of 2011. This portrait of me at work was one of the requirements. That was an undertaking in itself. Setting the 10-second delay on the shutter and running to get in position many times til I got it right.

Desert Symphony Program Cover Winner

My "California Sunset" was selected as the winner of the Program cover competition.
YAY! Besides the cover I get a free full-page ad in the program worth $3000. Luckily, I spent the whole weekend putting the ad together because they gave me 5 hours notice til it was due. I never was able to convert the PageMaker doc to a pdf as they required so had to recreate the whole ad in Photoshop. So I learned a new skill. Now I know how to combine multiple photos in one jpeg. Noone uses PageMaker anymore. One of these days I'm going to have to upgrade to InDesign. In addition to all this wonderful program stuff there is also the month-long gallery showing. I'm so honored and thrilled. This is the 7.5 x 10" ad.
