Happy Friday! This weekend is the long awaited 20th Year High School Reunion for S. I am really looking forward to meeting so many of his former high school friends, and I anticipate the weekend will be busy.

And going into the weekend I received great news from the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club that the painting above was accepted into the 114th Annual Open Juried Exhibition that will take place in October in New York City! I had shown a work in progress image previously however I never got around to sharing the completed painting with you.

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for reading,

Liz

PS. Slim has been helping me write this blog post, really she has been hindering me as she insists on sitting on my arms.

Congratulations! Your mastery of fabric is wonderful. It's no wonder your painting was accepted---and highly deserved.

I've fallen in love with Slim. I had a Abyssinian cat that lived 17 years. I was looking at all your pictures of Slim, and it makes me miss her. She wanted to sit between me and my computer screen. Slim is a beautiful cat, and your photos are endearing.

Enjoy your weekend!

Congratulation Elizabeth!
Just checked your site out today. This painting looks great. I've been doing quite a bit of landscape painting. Having a lot of fun.
