Field Trip to Ft Worth

Last week when my workshop group was here, we took a field trip to Ft. Worth to see the Hudson River School show at the Amon Carter Museum. There were some wonderful paintings in the show, but a lovely Sanford Gifford and a William Hazeltine were my favorites. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take photographs in the show but we were able to take them in the museum's permanent collection, which is excellent. Here are a couple of my favorites.

Afterwards, we visited Kornye West, the gallery that represents my work in Ft. Worth. Paula Kornye Tillman, the owner, graciously hosted a luncheon for us, and gave everyone a chance to ask questions about the gallery business.

It was a long but fun day!
