 I delivered my four miniatures to Parklane Gallery in Kirkland on Sunday and to my surprise, on Monday morning the show was already up online!  That's fast work!  Thanks to the folks at Parklane and Larey McDaniel, the photographer!  More exciting news, the work will be available for purchase on their website on May 9th!  Now, not only can you view the work, you can also put it in your shopping cart!  You can view the show and my four works on their website, Parklane Gallery Miniature Show.  My works are number 354A, Welcome to My Warren, 354B, Keeping Watch, 354C, Early Autumn, and 354D, Last of the Season

The 20th Annual International Juried Miniature Show opens May 8th and runs to June 3rd.  The Artists' Reception and Awards Presentation is May 11th from 6 to 8 pm.  There are over 400 works from some of the top Fine Art Miniaturists from all across the country and abroad.  Magnifying glasses are provided and closer looks are encouraged!

This is a local show for me and I will be attending the reception. Once again, my husband Wayne will take photos of the show and reception for me which I will post here on my blog and several miniature art forums. I am honored to be a part of this show. If you have never seen a miniature show in person and are in the area, this is a perfect opportunity! I hope to see you there.

**  Welcome to My Warren is framed in the gold frame shown, top image.  Originally I framed it in the black frame (as in the grouping above) because it went well with the rest in the series, Wood Nymphs and Other Curiosities.  However, when I checked the prospectus for the dimensions allowed in the show, the black frame was a tad too large. When re-framing, I decided to use the gold frame which I think looks very nice with the gold in her wings. 

So many shows entered, and now I wait for the notices to come to see if all my submissions have been accepted.  I'll be posting the results as I receive them for the Edmonds Arts Festival, LiveARTS Bothell and a few others.  Thanks for taking the time to read this.  Happy Mothers' Day!

Good luck Barb, it sounds like a great show. Your pieces look lovely.

Barb, where is the International Miniature Show? If I get a chance I would like to come down and see it. I will definitely check out your pieces while I am there.

Hi Wendy, Thanks for your comments. I sent you an email with information. Hope you get to see the show and perhaps enter next year! I hope to get to see your lovely work in person sometime too!
