5 of my paintings are still in the Madisonville Marketplace Winter Show. The show ends Jan. 3, 2011, so make sure you stop by for a look while shopping for the holidays!
I'll also have a couple of photos at Slidell Art League's "Christmas in the Depot" show, running from Dec. 3 'til Jan. 6th. The opening reception and awards ceremony is Dec. 3rd from 7-9pm at the Slidell Art League Gallery and Gift Shop.
My works are also still on display at the HRAC "Fine & Functional 4" show (see last month's newsletter for details.)
My Supernova abstract was accepted into an art auction to benefit the Louisiana Sea Turtle and Marine Mammal Rescue Program (50% of the sale price goes to the LSTMMRP--please help me spread the word!)
After having a couple of images awarded "photo of the week," last month I was invited to write for the Caught By Our Eyes online photography magazine. I was glad to accept and have focused so far on bringing reputable photography contests to the attention of our readers.
In other news, at the last Abita Artists meeting we decided to open our holiday party this year to the public (ages 21+ only, please.) It will be Dec. 17th, from 7pm 'til ? Admission will be a dish to share for our potluck dinner. BYOB. The party will be at the 9th St. Gallery in Abita Springs, where we hold our monthly meetings. Hope to see you there!
I found a new, 18 megapixel Canon EOS Rebel T2i (aka 550D) body for a good price online, so my husband was kind enough to buy it for me. It's scheduled to arrive any day now and I wait with baited breath!
The 8x10" photos on the "Shop Now" tab of my Facebook page are currently 40% off! Pop over for a look--they make great gifts! (Note; gift certificates are also available. Feel free to e-mail me for more info.)
Congratulations to this month's winner of a free 8x10" photo, timethief!

New Paintings

With all of the shows and other plans I've had going on, I haven't had time to complete a painting since last month. I am currently working on another forest scene, however, as well as considering the subject matter for a larger work to start in the near future. In the meantime, please enjoy a slideshow I recently put together;

Thanks for reading. If you enjoyed this newsletter, please feel free to share it with friends!
