one thing i love about art is " artist just do their own thing ". they are inspired by their surroundings & the work of their fellow artists. but, in the end, they just can't help but be original. 2 artists i admire. " the story teller " by troy crisswell ( watercolor ) & " red dress " by martin pate ( conte' & pastel ) 2 + 1 i just finished. " raskolnikov " ( mixed media ) please click the images for a close up.

this work has been submitted for the prestigious " oil painter's of america " competition, 2010. " mountain farm " was meticulously painted on 30" x 24" canvas by our friend & talented, local artist, bob francisco. martin pate told me that he has entered 2 paintings into the same competition. we wish them the best. this is sure to be quite an exhibition.
