Small Works, Great Wonders

This past Friday night was the opening of the Small Works, Great Wonders show at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. This is an invitational show which includes Prix de West artists as well as other invited artists. I had not thought I would be well enough to go, but at the last moment decided I just did not want to miss it. So Steve and I made the 4+ hour drive up Friday. 

The Museum was packed, the show was beautiful and sales were brisk, including one of mine! I am back home and exhausted, but so glad I went. I have written before about this museum and also its connection to my friend and mentor Hollis Williford. So, it was a very special evening and I think Hollis would be proud!

Aspen Sunrise found a new home. Steve loves this piece but I almost didn't send it, fearing it was too subtle and would not be appreciated. Well, it got six bids- shows you what I know!

I was in California or I would have loved to have seen you. I did see the painting. Beautiful! It's a perk to live in OK City now. I get to see some of the best of the west!
