I've been making a real effort these past couple of years to get juried into and participate in some of the bigger shows out here in the west. As with anything else, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. This was a winning show for me! I had sales and got to participate in the quickdraw! (Thank you Lindsey Bittner Graham for the encouragement) I'm pictured here at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum Western Spirit Show on March 2nd right after the quickdraw (I had only 30 minutes, yikes!) What fun it was to participate! I came up from the Springs, spent 2 nights, attended the mixer Friday evening, went to the artists symposium all day Saturday and finally opening night later that evening. Long day but really worth it. At the symposium I watched Brandon Bailey start a painting and talk about light and shadows, and heard lectures on the state of contemporary western art from 3 influential women, Rose Frederick, Nikki Todd and Mindy Beshaw. It was all very enlightening and informative. I met some really nice folks up there and I look forward to participating again! Watch for more posts on this subject as the year unfolds as I've been accepted to 2 more shows!
