April, 2010

What’s New

~ Awards and Honors
~ deviantART Account
~ Painting; Great Blue Heron

Lana was very busy through March, but much of her hard work paid off. She won 3rd Place awards at Slidell Art League’s Quest for Fire show for her “Sun through Live Oaks” photo and her “Life on Mars” acrylic painting. She also won 3rd Place in the Ovation TV community Yearning for Spring contest with her “Spring Forest” painting. Her previous Best in Show winner, “Gyrfalcon,” sold at the Bayou Lacombe Art Center Art at the Refuge show. On April 2nd she was notified that her blog, "The Dreaming Tree,” has been listed among “The Best 47 Photo Blogs on the Web” and that another of her photos will be featured on the cover of the upcoming “Alternatives” magazine. Lana also recently signed up at the deviantART website, where many of her works are available in a wide variety of formats.
Unfortunately Lana came down with pneumonia toward the end of March, so she’s planning on as much rest and recuperation as she can get in April.
Her work is still showing at Phil’s Grill in Hammond, the new “A Work of Art” gallery in Madisonville until Apr. 9th, the Jazz & Heritage Gallery in New Orleans until Apr. 10th and the Slidell Art League gallery until Apr. 16th.

New Works
Since her “Great Blue Heron” painting seems to be missing, she painted a new version of it (shown at left,) this time larger at 20x16”. She’s also currently working on an 18x24” painting of a Northern harrier, based on a photo she took at Fontainebleau State Park.
