Auctioning off my Quick-draw Gouache Watercolor Painting at the Pioneer Museum Western and Wildlife Art Show.  My Laramie Peak painting seemed popular as I got top money in the auction for the painting.
I am a little behind in posting this.  Several weekends ago I participated in the Pioneer Museum Western and Wildlife Invittional Art Show in Douglas, Wyoming.  This is the 20th year for this show and is to be the last year for this event.  Attendance was great and they put on such a great show it will be hard to accept the fact that this is the last year. 
For the second year in a row I won the Peoples Choice Award with my Oil painting, END OF WINTER seen here in this photo at the upper left of my display shown off my my Great Granddaughter, Evie Anna.  The painting was also chosen for the Museum Purchase Award.  The third time in twenty years this has happened for me.  That is a wonderful honor.  My sales were really great and my auction painting went very well as did my Quick-draw which by far exceeded all my expectations.

Saturday night was the annual Fund Raiser for the Chance Phelps Foundation and the Needs Of Dubois.  My gallery pardner, Tom Lucas and myself contributed a 1 hour Quick-draw painting for their fund raising.  Mine is a 16"x20" Gouache Watercolor painting of the Grand Teton.  Oh.  The Staff card.  We had to wear that to get into the event as the second of two nightly concerts were about to start and that allowed us entry for the evening.  All held at the Dubois Town Park.  that itself is quite a place for the little town of Dubois.  There were certainly a lot of people in attendance.
