It’s time to break the long silence–this will be short because a newsletter will be sent out by Kara, the artist, very soon and a copy of it will be posted here. However, I am too excited to make an announcement, I just can’t contain myself, so I’m going to spill the beans before the newsletter comes out. “Look! Flying Jewels!,” the 3rd painting in The Bird Watcher series, of which I am the star–or possibly I’m just a supporting character in the painting–has been chosen to participate in two shows. Last week Kara told me that she had received notification from the National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society (NOAPS), that it was one of 150 paintings chosen to participate in their Spring On-line Show. The show is currently up on their website: http://www.noaps.org.
The other show I, I mean, the hummingbirds, are featured in is in the 1st Annual All Things Birds and Beautiful Show and Sale on Orcas Island. I’m particularly exited about this show because all sales commissions go to helping bird habitat in the San Juans, particularly Orcas Island. Kara and I will be heading up to the show opening VERY early on Thursday so we can catch the ferry by 10:45 a.m.. You can find all the details about the show as well as see all the beautiful art that is included in the show/sale at www.allthingsbirdsandbeautiful.org. This should be a great opportunity to meet fellow wildlife and bird artists as well as wildlife/bird art collectors. We, Kara and I, will also be doing some en plein air painting and photography while there. Watch for pictures to follow. 😉
More to come from the artist, very soon!
