Oil Painters of America 2014 National Juried Exhibition: Kirk Larsen: American Artist

I am really thrilled that my portrait of plein-aire painter Kirk Larsen has been selected for the upcoming OPA Exhibition in Bennington, VT, this coming June. The Bennington Center  for the Arts has become quite iconic for representational fine art painters, hosting shows and exhibits for some of the most respected artists working today.

While images from the participating artists aren't yet available, I've seen some of the work that was accepted, and the show promises to be a "Wow". Last year's exhibit at the Insight Gallery in Fredericksburg, TX was the first I've attended, and I have to say I enjoyed not only seeing some of my old (meaning not recent, LOL) artist friends, but also making some really wonderful men and women whose friendships will, I  know continue to grow.

I'll post more photos of the Exhibition after the June event!
