I guess I met their lofty criteria as I received my letter of acceptance. Now I can participate in all their shows as well as try to sell some of my work in their gallery.
Here's a photo of one of the marshes. A scene from Scortin Creek in Sandwich.
Here is a poor image of my Mission painting.

I decided to splurge when (brag alert) one of my paintings at the Sedona Art Center sold and I got word that I have a buyer for my painting in the Norfolk Cultural Center show. So, I have found money to pay my credit card bill.
This was a great spot. There was an old cattle chute, used to load cattle onto a truck, and a watering hole. During the day, the sun passes almost directly overhead so that at any given time all the shadows will be changing. Got to work fast.

The opening night was part of the 1st Friday Gallery Tour in Sedona so there was quite a crowd. This photo of the Art Center doesn't reflect the crowd as everyone was inside.

As we are in Sedona, I submitted a few of my southwest paintings. My friends at home in the NVA have seen them but they may be new to other people.
Of course, I had to enter one of my favorite subjects, an old truck from the King's Mine in Jerome.
Other favorite subjects to paint are jeeps and the red rocks. This one has two subjects for the price of one. I came across this guy struggling over the slick rock on the Broken Arrow trail.
Finally, I painted this bronc rider from a photo I took at the Tucson Rodeo.
I am really elated to have my work appreciated enought to be juried into the show. When I saw the check marks after the word Accepted for each submission, I was thrilled.

The others took advantage of the vista to paint views of the distant red rocks with some of the greenery in the foreground. This was a good spot as there were many subjects to choose from. I have a feeling we will be going back there again.

I'll also have a couple of my adirondacks on display at the new Walpole Library when it opens in the near future. They are nice 6x8's in gold plein air frames. They'd look good on someone's wall as a pair. Hint, hint. Here's a photo of one of them.
