Opening weekend Art of the Animal

The Bennington Center for the Arts, Bennington, VT

I had a wonderful time this weekend in Bennington Vermont, for the opening of Art of the Animal Kingdom XIX. The Bennington Center for the Arts, is simply a wonderful place, it's a large, open, beautiful space, with beautifully curated galleries in a scenic area. The gallery director, family and staff made the artists feel welcome, and we were pampered to a wonderful day of events, reception and dinner on Saturday, along with breakfast and a quiet walk on our own through the Center on Sunday. There are more than 50 artists' works at the Animal Kingdom gallery alone, and I will treasure the exhibit catalog as a fond remembrance of the artists I met. There is a lot to see at The Bennington, beyond our Animal Art exhibit, and I would highly recommend a stop there if you are in the area!

Dude with Attitude

I was recently excited to present the above commissioned watercolor painting, and it was equally well received, entitled "Dude with Attitude".

This is one of the lizards the clients had enjoyed observing on one of their trips out west, and had ideas about character and wanted a western feel to the setting. They presented me with some of their photos of various lizards—but wanted the piece to be of my creation and style.
