PAAC's 14th Annual Members Juried Exhibition

This year's exhibit will be at Saks Gallery on 2nd Ave in Cherry Creek. My painting "Spring's First Colors" is 14x18 and was painted in Arroyo Hondo on our way back from the Bob Dunn Bridge. The spring water was running high in the creek and this scene felt so "Taos". I'm glad we pulled over for one last painting of the day.

The opening reception is this Friday, June 25th from 5 to 9 at Saks. I'll be there. Please stop by and say Hi.

Location, Location, Location

Here's Jeanne Hougen and I in front of our booth at this year's Summer Art Market. It poured all morning so this was taken during a brief dry period.

What I noticed right away when looking at these pictures was just how lucky we were to get this corner booth. Wow! I joked that we must've bribed the right people to score this location!

First and foremost, a great big Thank You to all my friends who ventured out in this miserable weather to come by and say hi. You're amazing. :-)

I was also so very pleased to talk with several collectors who made a point to come by and tell me about a piece they'd bought from me previously. Thank you, my new friends.  I love to hear where you have hung the painting (kitchen, bathroom?) and that you are enjoying it. That makes my day.

Lastly, I want to thank my booth mate, Jeanne, and her husband Glen. Putting up that whole exhibit is a ton of work and we could not have done it without Glen. And Jeanne, what can I say? You are a wonderful artist and a beautiful person. We had so much fun. Let's do it again!

Thankfully, we now get a 362 day break.
