Aces and Eights - Settlers West

Settlers West Gallery in Tucson has been having an American Miniatures show for over 25 years. More than 200 artists will participate in this stellar event. I have been invited to send 2 paintings this year. The opening will be February 13, 2010

Aces and Eights is one of the pieces I will have at this show. It is 12 x 9, oil on board. 

Aces and Eights is known as the Dead Man's Hand in a two-pair poker hand. The hand gets its name from the legend of it being the five-card-draw hand held by Wild Bill Hickok at the time of his murder (August 2, 1876). It is accepted that the hand included the aces and eights of both the black suits. There is still debate about what the 5th card was.

Hubbard Museum's Biennale Grande

My painting Redwing has been accepted into the Hubbard Museum's Biennale Grande exhibition. The Biennale Grande is a juried fine arts competition that seeks to recognize and honor excellence in the contemporary visual arts of the American West.

R.D. and Joan Dale Hubbard founded the Hubbard Museum of the American West in 1992, then presented it to the City of Ruidoso Downs, NM in 2005. It has grown from its original incredible collection of Anne C. Stradling’s Museum of the Horse to being a truly first class historic Western museum.

The Biennale Grande exhibit will be on display Jan 30 - April 11, 2010

You will me missed

It's hard to believe that this year is almost over! I participated in lots of shows, got some awards and made an appearance in several magazine articles. All in all it's been a good year.
I want to thank everyone who bought my art, came to see my art in shows and galleries, took the time to email me or just visited me on my websites and blogs. Without you I couldn't do what I do. Thanks so much.
