Wow! Another blessing!

This one was tucked away in my spam folder!  One of my pieces was selected to be a finalist in The Artist Magazine 30th annual national competition!  I am honored to have one of my pieces to be chosen among so many talented artists works!  There were over 6000 entries this year.  Can't begin to express my excitement when I  found out!  Here's the special seal I may post as a finalist.  The website for The Artist Magazine is posted too.  They offer wonderful articles when you sign up for their newsletters.

Pepper Sauce

I love to be surrounded by color.  It energizes me and makes me smile...:)  So, it's a natural fit that Homer Laughlin's Fiesta dishes are my favorite dishes for everyday use as well as collecting (vintage and discontinued pieces).  The pepper shaker in this painting is a vintage Fiesta shaker.   The striking deep red pottery vase is by Mary Lee Floreschuetz, a potter who sells at Framers Gallery in Georgetown.  The painting will be going to Cactus Jacks Fine Art Gallery in Gruene, Texas.
