My "Sunset through Live Oaks" photo took 1st Place (photography,) at last month's Art for Madisonville Members' Show. My "American Alligator" photo (at right,) recently won 2nd Place in a Slidell Photography Club contest (and will go on to a larger, regional competition.)
My "Sunset at Lake Pontchartrain" photo was featured in Gary Graves' "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" music video. The photo comes in at the beginning (0:12,) and the end (3:33.) Thanks to Gary and producer, Laura Tabor-Huerta for the opportunity. Due to the submission of the video to a contest, it will not be available for public viewing until March 6th. Please check back after that date to have a look.
My "Sunset at Cedar Bay" painting was recently accepted into the City of Port Colborne's permanent art collection, where it hangs on the 3rd floor of City Hall.
I prepared 5 photo donations and sent them along for WYES' Art Collection Twelve fundraiser. If you live in the New Orleans area, be sure to tune in, enjoy lots of wonderful art & perhaps bid on some works!
I will be "Artist of the Month" at Bayou Barber in Covington, LA for the month of April. I will likely hold a reception on Apr. 9th and will update this post (and my facebook page,) with the information once final decisions are made. (UPDATE; My host had to push my display back due to unforeseen circumstances. I will post the new information as soon as I have it.)
I will also be submitting works for Lacombe Art Guild's Spring Show in the lobby of the Louisiana Medical Center and Heart Hospital. Apr. 2, 6-9pm; Reception/awards. The exhibit will also be open Apr. 3, noon-5pm.
Some of my work is now available directly through Dawn Marie's Cafe in Abita Springs, LA.
The "Crude Haiku; Oil Poems" book (featuring my Great Egret photo on the cover,) is now available for sale (by donation.) Sales benefit the Louisiana Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Rescue Program. Visit the New Orleans Haiku Society blog for more information.
Congratulations to Jan.'s free 8x10" photo winner, Fleet J. Ott!
