FAC Blue/Green World Exhibit.

Greetings All,
I found out on yesterday that my piece (PAQA-Water below) found a new home while on exhibit at Common Threads at the Riverfront Art Center in Stevens Point, WI. It's a small lovely piece with lots of texture and I am so very honored that someone loved it as much as I did in creating it. I miss not being able to attend PAQA for now, but hank you FAC of the opportunity to be a part of this exhibit and this group.

Happy Mother's Day/Piece of the Week.

Greetings All,
Happy Mother's Day to one and all.  I hope/pray that you have a great/safe day.  Below is the first part of a piece that I'm working on and I love its simplicity and colors.  The color combination was inspired by one of my students and I'm driven by color 1st and composition 2nd in most cases, but with this piece it is theme driven and I shall share more later.   Enjoy your day and be safe.

Greetings All,
