Oklahoma City Festival of the Arts!

It is already gearing up to be a great year for art! My recent "live paint" at Lovetts Gallery in Tulsa, OK was a huge success and I am happy to say many pieces went home with collectors that week. Sales in Santa Fe are already picking up as well.

I have been super busy painting for next week's big art event of the year in OKC, the Oklahoma City Festival of the Arts downtown April 24-29. It took me three years of applications to get juried into this show where 144 artists from all over the US and Canada are picked from over 500 applicants. I'm glad I made the cut! This show is one hour away from home and has a great backdrop of the OKC skyline with the new Devon Energy Tower almost complete.

So, come out and see me in booth 24C on the West side a little North of the center. Show opens Tuesday, April 24 at 11am. Hours 11am-9pm all week except Sunday, which will be 11am-6pm.

Another Weatherford, OK artist, Oil painter Cynde Roof will be next door in 26C and my friend Thomas Stotts, OKC acrylic landscapes in 28D. The Oklahoma posse! 

See you there!
