Figurative Award of Excellence at OPA National Exhibition!

We're very pleased to announce that last weekend at the Oil Painters of America National Exhibition "Majesty Rising" was awarded the John August Dietrich Memorial Figurative Award of Excellence!

A big thank you to awards judge Sherrie McGraw and to InSight Gallery in Fredericksburg TX for hosting in their beautiful space.

Unfortunately we weren't able to make it to the opening reception (I hear we missed a great weekend!) but the gallery was kind enough to send us a photo of the painting with her ribbon.

The exhibition will remain up until June 17, and is also available to view on the gallery's website.
A list of all the award winners is posted on OPA's website.

"Majesty Rising" Accepted into OPA National Exhibition

Charles and I were thrilled to learn awhile back that "Majesty Rising" had been accepted as a finalist in the upcoming Oil Painters of America National Exhibition.

Of the more than 1800 entries submitted to this prestigious show, only 200 were accepted, so I was walking around with a big goofy grin for quite some time after we got the news!

This year's exhibition is hosted by InSight Gallery in historic Fredericksburg TX and the opening reception is next weekend, May 18. The show runs through June 17.

If you can't make it down to Texas, all of the artwork is also available to view online on the gallery's website. The 98 page exhibition catalog is also posted there.

New Work: "Majesty Rising"

I loved watching this painting develop as Charles was working on it. She seemed to just step forward out of the shadows and almost stride right off the canvas.
