My painting Two Silver Dishes, shown here behind the cover of the magazine, appears in the current issue of International Artist magazine, issue 97, June/July 2014. Below the painting is information about my inspiration, design strategy and working process.
Each issue, the magazine has a Challenge in a specific genre (Landscapes, Wildlife, Favorite Subjects, etc.). Three winners and 10 Finalists are chosen; my painting is one of the Finalists in the Still Life challenge. For this issue, artists were chosen from the U.S., Portugal, Canada, and France. I feel very honored to be in their company.
As you may have noticed, this is the same painting that received a Merit Award recently in the annual juried exhibition of the Indiana Artists Club. It’s been a big month for Two Silver Dishes! FYI, Books-a-Million sells copies, and they’re available direct from the publisher.

Opening Celebration Sunday, June 29, 3:00pm - 5:00pm
I enter this wonderful show most years because my family’s roots run deep in central Wisconsin, and the show reflects scenes and themes that are rich in childhood memories for me. I was delighted to have work accepted once again this year. This annual, juried exhibition offers a wide variety of technique, media, process and subject matter relating to agriculture. Artists from across the United States share their unique and thoughtful interpretations.

PENROD ARTS FAIR
On the grounds of the Indianapolis Museum of Art

Our first outdoor art fair! Lou and I have a great fondness for Penrod. Many years ago we bought our first original painting there, a watercolor by Indiana artist Luke Buck. We still love the painting, which hangs in our living room, as much as we loved it the day we carried it home. We’re very excited to have been juried in as exhibitors. More info about booth location, etc., as soon as we have it.
