It has been awhile since I put anything new here. I plan to get some help with my website and want to start over with one of three or four different sites such as Artspan. I am posting a pastel titled originally "Still Life With Cactus Blossom" but I want to change the title to "Cactus Blues" instead. I won first place in the Still Life division of the Texas Pastel Society's first annual juried competition/show. The juror was Lorenzo Chavez, one of my very favorite artist. So I was quite honored.
