New Work: "Wild Azaleas"

Last week Charles and a friend spent several days on a plein air painting / backpacking trek in the North Georgia mountains and he brought home several lovely little paintings as a result.

While I'm waiting for him to go through and finalize his photos of that trip, I'll show off this little gem from a previous excursion, whose location didn't involve near as much effort to get to.

There was a storm coming that day, but sunlight broke through long enough to spotlight the spring blooms on the edge of the woods.

Charles Named an ARC Salon Exhibition Finalist

We got a wonderful email yesterday notifying us that Charles has been named a finalist in the 2013/2014 ARC Salon exhibition!

We don't know yet which painting made it in since their list only included artists' names. To increase suspense they're withholding title and category information until the exhibition goes live and the awards are announced in early May.

The ARC Salon is an annual online exhibition created by the Art Renewal Center and is in its 10th year. Their website is a vast repository of classical realist art and receives over 5 million annual visitors.
