Yep, I'm still here.  Still painting, trying to get admitted to shows, and learning the hard lesson that there are a lot of wonderful, talented artists out there and to get accepted to a juried show is quite an honor.  I will be in some non-juried shows and for this I am thrilled.  The MNWS has a fall member show and the MAA has a fall member show both at which I will have some paintings.  Art Attack at Northrup King is coming Nov 5, 6, 7.and I will be Studio 321.  I'm looking forward to seeing some of my friends and meeting new people.
