Midland Juried Art Show

Lets Dance!
I am honored that this torn paper piece was accepted into theMidland Art Association/Midland College 34th Annual Fall Juried Art Show. The show will be open from October 14 through November 11 at the McCormick Gallery, Allison Fine Arts Building in Midland.  I was told that there were a lot of entries, and they could only take a certain amount due to space.
This was done with magazine pages, and I used an acrylic wash on the background.

Demo in Midland, TX




Today I was honored to do a torn paper demo in Midland, TX..  My sister went with me and we had a great time. Haven't seen each other in about a year. (ridiculous) As I drove up, Barbara read the sign, and I got so excited, and told her we had to get a photo!

There was a big crowd, and they were so gracious, and interested, and excited to see how the torn paper was done.  I am doing a workshop there in March, and they told me today that the workshop was full. I put the bottom picture so you could see the cowboy I was working on. Of course I didn't even get through. I sold 2 pieces! Yeah! One of the boots and an old pick-up.

It was a lot of fun, but boy I am beat. Got up at 4:30 this a.m. to get there in time! What we will do for art!
