Check out this great article written by Angela Wrahtz! 

Wonderfully written story about the Portland Rose Festival's Annual Juried Rose Show held at the Oregon Society of Artists:

"Portland's Party is Coming Out Roses" - Takes 1st place at the 2013 Rose Show!

Picture I was so thrilled and honored that the juror gave me a first place for the theme category in this years Juried Portland Rose Festival show with the Oregon Society of Artists.  Very cool.  Then was doubly thrilled to also win the people’s choice award.  I actually was quite surprised  because I heard several large groups of people talking about a different painting that they were voting for so when they called my name I wasn’t expecting it!  Woo Hoo!

Painted in a workshop taught by artist Patricia Schmidt: Harvest's Last Light

My newest painting called Harvest's Last Light from a photo by artist Patricia Schmidt in her workshop called Fall Grapes.  An interesting study in high contrast and the play of dramatic light.  Here the leaves dance with the shadows of leaves and the grapes glow from the last rays of sunlight before it dips over the horizon.  Painted on Arches 140 pound cold press paper.  Image Size:  14" x 10"  This painting has sold.
