We will send notice of your acceptance to a newspaper in your region.

This show is at Stephen F. Austin State University whih is about a four drive from DFW.  I will be shipping the piece there.  I was accepted in 2006 but not in 2007.  This was the first time I entered since 2007.

The peice is the same one which was in the juried show at TCU.

April 1, 2012 It appears a lot of people worry about their art work arriving safely.  I forgot my some of my packing foam and asked via email to let me know if it arrived OK.  I heard nothing but an email did go out to everyone saying that only those would be notified if there work was damaged.

WB Bridge

A bridge scene at Wrightsville Beach.  A difficult one for me.  The value was to light and I kept trying to darken it.  This I believe made the color not as rich, maybe a little muddy.
