Oil on 1/2 Maple board

It is with great honor that I cordially invite you to the prestigious Birds in Art Exhibition at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin. My painting "On Tap (White-crowned Sparrow)" is one of 102 pieces from artists around the world juried into the exhibition. For me personally, I consider this exhibition to be the bar that I set for myself and my work – it is the best of the best!
I hope that you can join me in Wausau for the exhibition's opening on Saturday, September 12, 2015. You'll find me in the museum's gardens where I will be one of the "Artists in Action." I hope you can stop by and see the latest drawing that I am working on and see many other amazing artists at work, too.

"On Tap (White-crowned Sparrow)" has the double honor of being one of the pieces selected for the exhibition's official poster. A signed poster may be ordered by emailing Shari Schroeder at schroede@lywam.org by Tuesday, September 8, 2015. Posters are $12.50 and include shipping (international deliveries will be a different amount).

I have also been asked by the museum to return Wausau in November for its Artist-in-Residency program. I will be at the museum for several days giving talks about my graphite technique, teaching workshops and getting a closer look at the museum's collection.
