August NBAL Show - Land and Sea

I have decided to go with three photographs for this month's NBAL show, since I have no pastels that seem to fit the theme (Land and Sea).

The Cliffs of Mohr
The first picture is from the western side of Ireland.  The Cliffs of Mohr and the Atlantic ocean.  The second picture is from the other side of the Atlantic.  A lighthouse in the bay near Portland Maine.

Lonely Lighthouse

Finally, I am entering a panoramic picture of Bar Harbor, taken from the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park.  I call it Leaf Peepers, because that is why the two hugh cruise ships are there.  It's a 40 x 18  inch picture in the frame.

Last week in June

Here it is, the last week in June already.  Thursday I picked up the three pastels that were part of the NBAL display at Santa Christus Rosa hospital (the onion picture, the picture of the Irish stream and the snail picture).  Friday we delivered three pictures to the NBAL Texas show.  I entered the lizard photograph, entitled The Eyes of Texas (see previous post) and two pastels, Guadalupe Sky (previously accepted into the 2011 Texas Paster Juried Show, and my panel painting of the Palo Duro Mesa).  Got several comments on the lizard picture already, including one phone call from Jodie Taylor.  We will see what comes of this Friday, that's the opening reception.
