What's New

~ Award
~ TNC Feature
~ New Store/Feature
~ Updated Inventory
~ Legal Victory
~ Photo Giveaway Winner

In early December, my Pied-Billed Grebe photo (at right,) won 3rd Place (photography) in Slidell Art League's "Christmas in the Depot" show and my Barred Owl was featured as "Daily Nature Photo" on The Nature Conservancy's website. I also brought some fresh inventory to Phil's Grill in Hammond, LA.
A few weeks back I created an online store, where my images can be ordered in a variety of formats. On Xmas day my Space Mermaids poster was featured among "Today's Best."
I'm also pleased to report my default, legal victory against a former, local "businessman" who sold 2 of my paintings and didn't pay me. I was not displeased to learn soon afterward that he'd been arrested for some kind of altercation at his former location (at which point outstanding warrants came into play.)
Congratulations to Dec.'s free 8x10" photo winner, Freak Smack!

New Paintings

I've been working a fair amount on a new painting (which has morphed through many phases,) of an autumn forest. I hope to be finished soon. Here's a shot of some details;

  1. You do nice work. I enjoyed seeing it.

  2. Thanks, Abe. I appreciate the input. :)

  3. Whoohooo! I won! What do I need to do?

  4. I love them both. The Grebe looks so lonely and the autumnal shades in autumn forest are so rich.

  5. TT; Thanks. I'm trying to finish the painting today, actually. I could probably work on it forever, but I have to draw the line somewhere (pardon the pun.)

  6. Lana, I think I said way back how good your grebe photo was. Looks like lots of others recognised it too. Congrats but I would have given you first prize.

  7. Thank you, Phil. That's very kind of you. :)
