Woodson museum adds "Sewanee Barn"

I have been paid the ultimate compliment!


"Sewanee Barn (Feral Pigeons)"
Oil, 30 x 13

Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum has decided to add my painting "Sewanee Barn (Feral Pigeons)"to its collection. I am extremely honored and excited.

I recently wrote a thank you letter to the museum and all the staff thanking them for putting together such a wonderful exhibit. I wet on stating that nothing else has even remotely come close to that feeling of belonging to something so great that I felt when sitting under the tent for the first time in 2007. I consider Birds in Art to be the measuring stick for all of my work and artistic endeavors. I feel now that that measuring stick has been raised much higher. Thank you Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum for adding my painting to the Woodson collection. I will continue to strive to do my very best to reach that new height.
