It’s amazing to think that something that started as insignificant as a small “thumbnail” drawing in my sketchbook, has turned into a painting currently hanging at the Oil Painters of American National Juried Exhibition at the Southwest Art Gallery in Dallas Texas. The exhibit and convention were really exciting and fun. It was an honor to be juried into the show (translation: “I didn’t win an award.”) BUT nonetheless – I am already planning for next year!
In previous posts I detailed the application and approval process; varnishing, framing and shipping and this post will highlight just some of the many exhibition/convention activities I attended. Thanks OPA, Southwest Gallery, the great state of Texas and thanks to you for “hanging” with me while sharing the anatomy of an art competition.
