I am honored to announce my acceptance into the 4th Annual Encaustic Invitational for 2009. The show is hosted by the Conrad Wilde Gallery in Tucson, Arizona and runs March 7 – 28. I will have two pieces in the show including the painting above titled , Alchemy. I also learned today that my work has been accepted into another juried encaustic show sponsored by the Haydon Art Center in Lincoln, Nebraska. What an encouraging start in this year of the Ox. Needless to say, I am feeling very inspired and hopeful at the moment. I am hosting a little print workshop in my studio next weekend so It's time for some Spring cleaning before I can receive visitors. I'll post some images of the studio and new work soon.
