Hey, Hey, Hey... OPA!


This piece was juried in to the Oil Painters of America Eastern Regional Show at Walls Gallery in Wilmington, NC. Typically I mail these to the galleries for the shows but I think I may drive this one out there. Greeeaaat excuse for a road trip. The fact I love the country between here and there doesn't hurt either, especially the western side of NC.
I also noticed a couple of other Tennessee artists got in. Jeff Jamison and Tarron Parsons, both personal friends and fabulous artists. Congratulations guys.

Wow what a view, what a painting,
no wonder that's juried.

Congrats Kevin, ... but thinking about it, we should congratulate the Gallery, ... don't we?

Congrats on the painting! It is just beautiful. I have to say though that I wish it would've been hay bales...I am partial to your hay bale paintings! I am in Franklin this week doing Dawn Whitelaw's plein air bootcamp and have been seeking out and painting hay bales all week, just wishing I could do them like you! I'm not there yet and may not ever be, but I wanted you to know what an inspiration you are to other artists!

Congratulations. Sometimes I think I should just send in the entry fee without any paintings. Its so competitive to get accepted. Congratulations again from Southeast Missouri.

Just found you through Jason Saunders' facebook page, and I'm a friend of Taaron's. Some lovely work here, so thrilled to see it online.

Glad to hear you'll be headed this way. Thanks for participating. The jurors did a terrific job. It's true that the competition is stiff - about 10% of submissions are accepted. We can compare ourselves to what we've done before, to our companions, or to the best - each has value, but the comparison to the best is what keeps us reaching and growing. Look forward to meeting you! Safe trip - see you at the gallery!
