ARTWORK DROP-OFF: 8-?-2009

Here I am dropping off two paintings: "Big Cork Tree" (which was not accepted into the exhibition) and "Summer in the Valley" (which was accepted). I never presume to know which of my paintings will be well received, it varies from judge to judge and person to person. However, I always get excited to hear from people what they think of my paintings.
