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!
