First, my painting,"Cowboy Dave", was accepted into the (American Plains Artists 24th annual show). It will be held at the Museum of the Southwest in Midland, Texas. ( I should buy some cowboy boots because I will be flying down to the lone star state for the opening reception on August 28th.
I was also picked for the (International Guild of Realism Juried Exhibition) in Naples, Florida - February 2009 show. This painting " On Foot" did not get picked. That's fine because I am free to give it to a gallery now.

However, this painting was one of 53 chosen by the guild. I love the name... (thanks goes to my manager in charge of titles/wife). The show will be at the (Weatherburn Gallery) in Naples, Florida. I am thrilled beyond words.... OK maybe not beyond them, otherwise how could I tell you? But I am thrilled!
I am also planning on going to that opening. It should be a lot of fun attending these two shows. Luckily they are spaced far enough apart.... hopefully I can sell a few more on Ebay to cover the airfare.
