best in show

This month I participated in a fundraiser for a great local non-profit: the Stonewall Farm Annual Art Auction. Many local artists submitted work for this worthy cause and I am pleased to announce that my piece "lazy day" won best in show.

Creatures: Real & Imagined

I've been painting chickens this year. I'm ready to join the craze of having a backyard flock of laying won't work out until next summer so I'm getting by with just painting them for now.

This piece is part of a show "Creatures: Real & Imagined" at the Sharon Arts Center, Peterborough, NH. May 7th - July 4th.
