Tomorrow I will be leaving for the Colored Pencil Society of America's International Exhibition and convention week near Dallas, Texas. This event always proves to be five days of great fun and lots of laughter with good friends, as well as a tremendous source of inspiration. A cowboy boot shopping expedition planned originally by several members, seems to have morphed into a virtual CPSA field trip -- so much so that we may do well to rent a bus. (And grant me a 'whine' for a moment: I think I broke a toe yesterday, who's swelling could prohibit me from being able to properly try on boots this week. This could be a catastrophe.) So stay tuned for photos of wild, middle-aged women. Okay, well............ maybe not so wild. : )
My piece Dust and Thunder has been juried into the American Plains Artists 27th Annual Exhibit. The show will be on display in Las Cruces, New Mexico, from September 9 - October 30, 2011, at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum. The exhibit can also be viewed on the American Plains Artists website.
So, see you on the other side of the convention -- and thanks so much for reading.
