The Edge of Realism

I'll be participating in a group show during the month of November at Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado. The show is called "The Edge of Realism" and you can see many of the included works, as well as show information, on the gallery's event page. I'll have three paintings in the show including this new piece.

Below left, is an animated GIF detail image of Observation taken in raking light to show the texture of the paint surface. Click to zoom on the image and you should see the image flip between even light and raking light.

 I'm realizing now that I haven't posted here that my painting, Fallen Seeds (below right), received an Award of Excellence in last month's Oil Painters of America Eastern Regional Exhibiton! I'm very honored to receive the award in the company of so many great paintings.
