“Day of Rest”
SOURCETEK AWARD OF EXCELLENCE
PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD
I also won an "Honorable Mention" award in the Outdoor Painters Society's Associates members show for my painting "Just Sitting"
Six years ago, my wife told me about a painting group holding a quick draw event that Saturday. I was not an oil painter and I had no idea what a quick draw was. I went to it and was amazed at what I saw. I didn't know you could do an oil painting in under two hours, especially paintings of that quality, but what amazed me the most was how welcoming, friendly and quick to share this group of people were. That night I went to the 1st Plein Air Southwest Salon show and I WAS HOOKED! I'm proud to be a member but most proud of my friendships inside the group.

Is it just me or do paintings look better with big ribbons?
My wife loves and supports me and makes my life fun.
