Oil Painter's of America Exhibition

Well, we returned from our Montana trip to attend the Oil Painter's of America exhibition. We drove up to Missoula, Montana, about a 10 hour drive from Bend, Oregon. Overall, it was a great road trip for me and my wife. It was an a opportunity to spend some time away from the kids. as far as the show was concerned, I felt flattered and perplexed at the same time that my painting was selected. While most of the entries were romantic and traditional in nature, my painting stood out as the most unsaturated in nature and subject matter. Here is a shot of my painting amongst beautiful paintings form across the nation. It is the tiny, grey thing next to the white arrow.

I also met some renowned artists and I am glad to have met them, Scott Powers and Joe Iantorno.
