 Shocked to have 2 pieces in the 2017 SAAG National Juried Show!

I was honored and totally blown away at being accepted in the Blueridge Mountain Art Association SAAG National Juried Show with not one but TWO pieces of art! There are many fantastic artists who participate, so this is a real honor.

The pieces will hang in Blueridge, Georgia for a month. The little town has become a popular art community, listed in the top 10 in the nation. As well as just being a stinking cute old fashioned town, it offers festivals, galleries and lots of cool shops and restaurants. The biggest draw is a restored train that will haul you around beautiful foothills of the mountains for a few hours, which I got to paint two times for their plein air event in September. (BTW, to ride the train make sure to order those tickets wayy in advance.)

I knew the piece would hang during the fall art festival so I chose a few photos I had taken a few falls ago at my favorite local garden center, Scottsdale Farms, in Milton, Ga. Here are the progress shots of the large piece, produced in my studio in July.

The show opens October 7 and runs through November 11, stop by the art center gallery and visit if you are in town. Thanks for looking and wish me luck!
