Spring is Over, A New Beginning

Spring was finished on the 1st day of Summer. I will say more about the pastel, above, which I just started, as soon as possible.

Spring in Progress

"Spring" (In Progress)
18" x 24"

I am hoping to finish this before Summer officially begins, but it might not happen! There will be roses in that bush at the side, and maybe some other small additions.

News: I received a letter regarding my application to the Lawrence Art Guild Association's Annual Career Opportunity Grant. While I was not chosen for the grant, the panel was apparently so impressed with my work and the scope of my proposed project that they decided to award me an honorable mention! I am still trying to drum-up additional funding to study with Virgil Elliott; my fingers are crossed.

Here is the final version:

Oil on Canvas

Over the weekend, I attended the Second Saturday Art Show at the Overland Park Convention Center, and met a couple of nice artists. I also browsed their permanent collection, which is definately worth the stroll. If you cannot visit Art at the Center in person, feel free to view the Virtual Gallery of the Human Form Exhibition.
