All 5 Works Accepted in 2009 MASF!

I've received my acceptance letter from the Miniature Art Society of Florida, (MASF) and I'm so happy to have all five of my miniatures accepted into this wonderful exhibit! This show along with the other miniature art society show, Miniature Painters, Sculptors & Gravers Society, (MPSGS) are the two biggest deals for a miniature artist in this country. I'm always so pleased to have my work get juried in these two shows!! My five miniatures in the MASF show are, A Touch of Autumn, Buddha in the Pacific Northwest, Joey, and the two new works, Wednesday,Late Afternoon, and The Key.


Wednesday, Late Afternoon, Acrylic on Polymin, 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"
I did a partial work in progress on this acrylic painting on polymin, in this blog post.


The Key, Graphite and Acrylic on Acid-free Film, 2 3/8" x 3"
This work is done on Dura-lar Matte film. I have been fascinated with crows lately, they keep appearing in my work!

The 35th Annual International Miniature Art Show runs from January 17th, through February 7th, 2010 at the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art in Tarpon Springs, FL. For more information on exhibition dates, times and places to say, please visit the MASF website, click on "Annual Exhibition", then scroll down for the 2010 schedule and listings of places to stay. This would be such an exciting show to see!

Thanks Tatiana and Janie. I'm glad my blog has helped you Tatiana. Miniatures are so fun, aren't they? Especially when you get in the big shows.

Janie, I think I'm stuck on crows! Really interesting birds. I saw a really striking scene the other evening when I delivered my work in Bothell. It was looking towards the park landing when they were all flying east into the setting light with the orange trees behind them! It would have been too dark for a photo though. But just beautiful and so many of them!

That is wonderful news Barbara, but I'm not in the least surprised as they look fantastic! Congratulations!

I agree with you on crows/corvids, they are amazing birds aren't they! That sounds like a beautiful scene.
