Now, I need to give recognition to several nationally and internationally known artists who have been my teachers and mentors: Sterling Edwards, Judy Greenberg and Lian Qahn Zhen. Lian in particular has had the most influence on my work and has given me the tools to win two Best of Shows this past season. Here are three paintings done in his workshops both in Missoula and in Yuma in the past year and a half.
The next two paintings are ones that won Best of Show this year. The first is " On My Morning Stroll" a favorite subject of mine, the beautiful cactus that grace Arizona's lovely April landscape,
And finally, "Palm Canyon Trailhead," Best of Show in the Fine Arts Exhibit of Yuma's Annual Fair.
