Oil Painters of America

The Old Gate
16 x 20

I am thrilled to announce that I was accepted in the Oil Painters of America's 24th Annual Juried National Exhibition. I am somewhat shocked that I got in - on my first try.  There are lots of amazing artists who have tried for years and not gotten into this show so I am both honored and humbled to be part of this show.

I was thrilled that your painting was accepted as well, Ms. McConkey, as, at the end of the OPA exhibition, it will be coming to live with me in Canada! I was taken with it from first sight on the OPA page and the Cutter and Cutter Gallery has been really helpful with it's purchase. I will enjoy it for many years to come. Thank you!

Keith - I just came upon your comment on my blog. So nice to have a name to the purchase of the painting. By now it should be hanging on your wall. Hope you like it there. Would love to see a photo of it in it's new home if you are so inclined.
