They Call it Connection Cafe

They Call it Connection Cafe
mixed media on canvas 20 x 20 inch

This painting is one of my newest and was inspired by those wonderful one-on-one chats that we have with friends or family...those soulful talks that leave an impression.  I'm sure we've all had them, both men and women and I find myself rather grateful for them.

 I am happy to announce this work was recently accepted into the Arts Council Annual Juried Art Show at City Arts here in Wichita, Kansas. You can read about the show here if you are interested.  The opening is tomorrow night and I plan to be there.

This is special because this is my first time entering a juried show and I am so honored to be in the mix of a lot of really talented artists.

Hope you're weekend to come is a great one.  Thanks as always for following my art.

  2. Hi Lisa,
    Great news! I knew it was only a matter of time. Glad you had the courage to enter. Entering any juried show is nerve wracking to put it mildly.
    Hopefully, you'll be posting similar news in the near future, too. Congratulations on this significant success and I wish you all the best at the show.
    Sincerely,
    Gary.

  8. So Victorian..having tea with friends resonates on so many levels. We are the best sharers ever. Your painting reflects the heart of that period and soulful communication. I too love the details.
