Good Afternoon: Thought I would catch you up on my two latest paintings and the  Melvin Gallery Show. 

Here are my two latest paintings. First is "Canyon Face" I started working in oils about a month ago and really am enjoying the color and vibrance from 

the oil paint. Canyon face is 12x12 on Gesso Board and I just ordered a frame for it. 

Other new painting is "Afternoon Build Up". It is also a oil and is a 8x10 Canvas framed.

I am looking back now at places and memories I have for doing these paintings. The western landscapes offer so much to a artist to study and paint. I am in that mode right now. True I live in Florida and I do Florida art but my main painting direction now is Western Landscapes and Contemporary Western Art in Oils, Watercolor, Acrylic and MIxed Media. 

If you have a interest in these two paintings got to my website to see the pricing and contact me if you are interested.

 Ok the Lakeland Art Guild Annual Juried Show is currently running until June 8th, 2019 at the Melvin Gallery at Florida Southern College in Lakeland Florida. The gallery is open Monday-Friday 10-4 PM. I am happy to announce I won Best of Show for my piece "Farmng US301". It is explained in a previous blog in November 2018. Do try to see all this good art. I was humbled to win with so many talented artists  and it is such a great show. 

All for today. Enjoy your week. Steve
