I am honored and blessed to be juried in again this year to paint this years painting in the Wickford Art Gallery 2018 Poetry and Art publication.

I was chosen last year in 2017 as well and a poet wrote a poem to my piece titled. ” The Journey”  that can be seen in my surreal category here on my site.

It was an amazing experience!  the 2017 publication can be purchased from the Wickford Art Gallery 401-294-6840. If you call and order one of the books I will go there and sign it for you before it is shipped to you. The cost is $25.00

There are a wonderful group of artists from many different medias that have wonderful poems written to their works.

This year is different.The process has been reversed,  I was provided a poem and will paint a piece that represents my interpretation of the poem. I am pretty excited.

I have received my poem on May 1st and have already created several primarily sketches about the poem.

I can not expose the poem yet as on the day of the opening I meet the poet and present the artwork. It is an amazing spirit filled event. I hope that my friends here can attend.

It will be in September 2018 I can tell you that the poem is Native American inspired. I could have actually used this months piece, but it is already sold. The artwork has to be available for purchase and presentation on the day of the presentation.

Stay connected to get dates and times as well as seeing the work posted here after the presentation.
