At the last minute I decided to enter the two coke paintings that I had done together, as a diptych, into the Mansfield Art Center May show. I thought they were stronger together vs. individually. It turns out they were judged in individually anyway... but they said they would hang them together. One never knows .... :) but I was very happy to get in!!!

So.. this is what they should look like...

They are even more powerful together. Congrats on the acceptance.

I guess it would be a compliment(?) if I told you I thought these were photos!?

I do like the dark tone you've chosen for your compositions.... Bravo!

I'm drinkin' my Pepsi (decaf, diet) and celebrating your being juried in. Well, DUH! WE knew you'd get in. :-) Congratulations & kudos.
