Well, so much has happened since my last blog posts! First and foremost is that I became a Juried member of the Society of Animal Artists!!
This has been a dream of mine for so long, and now I am in the organization of many of my animal art heroes. We took an amazing trip out to Colorado, and I think I have enough material to paint now for a few years....seriously. I would move out there in a heartbeat. I also won an Honorable Mention for the Pastel 100 competition in their Animals and Wildlife Category with my painting "Intersections". It was chosen from about 2200 entries. On the down side, I've had some health challenges this year which have hindered my paintings at times. I'm continually going to try to fight through those the best I can. Getting ready to start on my next painting!
I have some new paintings in the works, as well one that is nearly finished. I hope to post it soon. I wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
Let your creativity pour out this year! -John
I'm so excited to get my website up and running again! I would like to thank my wife and family for getting this going! What a great present for my big 50th birthday.
I will keep you informed of new paintings in the works, art shows, and any other information that I hope you will find engaging!
This is still a work in progress so bear with me. I've never "blogged" before.
I will continue to add my paintings in over the next several weeks.
Please drop me a note to let me know you stopped by!
