Afternoon Delight at Dutch Art Gallery

Afternoon Delight
12" x 12" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Yesterday was the Artists' Reception at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas for the "It's A Small World" exhibit.  There was a great turn-out, and this painting, "Afternoon Delight" took third place in the jurying.  (A total surprise for me, since I haven't won anything in a long time!!!)  Judges were Steve Hahn and Ellie Taylor, both fabulous artists.  Here is a pic of gallery owner Pam Massar, Ellie, Steve and I with my framed painting.
It was so much fun to meet some new collectors and artists throughout the afternoon.  It was especially fun to have friend Gwen Bell take second place and studio partner Sharon Hodges take first place in the judging.

That cheeseburger was fabulous!!!

  1. While much of Thomas Kinkade's worldwide acclaim stemmed from his well-crafted use of chiaroscuro – the use of strong contrasts between light and dark – Kinkade was an artist whose talents spanned many genres and artistic styles.
