Good News Cherries - sold

Good News Cherries :: oil on panel :: 6"x6" 
So much to tell! First, these cherries were very fun to paint on yellow!

Second, the Plein Air Event at the Portland Art Museum was a huge success by everyone's standards!

Saving the best news for last, I got a painting accepted into the 13th Annual American Impressionism Society National Juried Exhibition in November in Indianapolis IN!
AIS received 1000 entries and out of those entries, a panel of judges selected 100 paintings to be in the show November 8, 2012. I feel so fortunate to have gotten in! at the bottom of this post, I will add a photo of my painting that will be in the AIS National Juried Exhibition.
