Juror Anna Tahinci of the Glassell School of Arts at Museum of Fine Art Houston has selected two of my works to be in the Visual Arts Alliance 9th Juried Invitational Exhibition. These are on exhibit on the concourse level of 1600 Smith St in downtown Houston from January 10 through the end of February. These pieces are on the kiosk closest to the stairs.

A position of power 2 is the largest of my 3-piece trio on this subject. I have a koi pond in my front yard and a bayou a half-block away, so every so often we find a heron stop by looking for a snack. This particular fellow flew up to the utility line from the pond deck as I made my presence known. I retreated to the back deck where I had a good shot at him with my Canon camera. I photoshopped out the background trees and sky and put in my own encaustic sky. I then did an image transfer of the image back on top of the encaustic.

Basswood hurricane is from my Tree Basement series described in my Vermiculite and February 2015 posts. It is the smallest of the series which has sold well.

Both are available for purchase. Contact me for logistics. Note that both pieces must remain on exhibition until the conclusion of the show March 19.
