Austin Pastel Society's "Corridor of Art"

If you are in the Austin area anytime soon, you must try to stop in and see the Austin Pastel Society's annual juried exhibition, "The Corridor of Art". I dropped off my 3 submissions for the event recently and was able to get a sneak preview while helping to hang the exhibit. I have to say, the show is exceptional, with a wide and diverse
assortment of styles and talent. Equally exciting, the entries will be judged this year by the internationally recognized and published, award winning pastel artist, Desmond O'Hagin. So, needless to say, it will be very exciting to see which pieces garner awards.

The show is being held at the Chase Bank Building on Lavaca and 8th St. in Austin, Texas and will remain on display until May 3. Don't miss this opportunity to view some incredible work.

* The 3 pieces shown above are "Cowboy K. P.", "Triple Crowns" and "Coffee Break".

2009 Poster for The Heritage Gathering

2009 Poster for The Heritage Gathering

Thought you might like to see the new 2009 poster for The Chuck Wagon Cook-Off and Heritage Gathering in Boerne, Texas. The image was painted from a photograph I took at one of the previous cook-offs a couple of years back. This particular cowboy is a seasoned chuck wagon cook and was kind enough to allow me to reproduce his likeness making his famous "Biscuits From Scratch" which is also the title of the painting.

I'll be signing posters there at the Agricultural Heritage Museum this Saturday, March 7, so come by and say hello. While you're there you'll be able to enjoy some of the finest chuck wagon cooking in the state of Texas. The Heritage Gathering is one of the most enjoyable family events in the whole Boerne area so don't miss it.
