WFWS was held in Las Vegas this past year, and I just received signature membership in that group. This year the Western Fed show is in the Dallas, Ft. Worth area and "View off Baylor Canyon Road" was judged into the show. I have won an award, but since the show isn't open yet I do not know that award yet. I will post later.

This book is now available from North Light Books. I am thrilled to have been included in this wonderful book. My painting, "Horseshoe Bend" can be found on pages 84-85.





Something I am trying to get to know better is acrylic painting. Here are a few of my latest attempts.

Zion Reflection | acrylic on canvas | 40 x 30
​This is a large painting (40 x 30). Acrylic on canvas titled Zion Reflections. I  intend on doing a giclee print of this piece, so it will be my first that is made for canvas. I'm pretty happy with this piece, and hope I can do others that are successful as well.
