Good Morning Texas, CBC, Watercolor Artist magazine

I belong to a group of collaborative painters, Canvas by Canvas and this is our newest painting of the Cowboy Stadium in Arlington, TX. and we invite you to watch us Monday, January 25 on Good Morning Texas on channel 8. This is the square that I painted:

"Charms and Legends"
12" x 12"
Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas

I posted this painting on my blog in August and now Watercolor Artist magazine has featured it online. The magazine has a Creativity Workshop article and issues a challenge each month. In the October 2009 magazine, M. E. "Mike" Bailey wrote about the "Play it Again" challenge to paint in a series of related ideas using the same subject. The above was the first painting that inspired me to continue with the couples idea, friends and lovers, series.

I have been notified that I've won first place in the challenge and you can see the paintings and article here online. There were two nice prizes that I will enjoy for months (1.) a six-month subscription to online video workshop and (2.)$50.00 worth of North Light Fine Art Books. I will post later about the title choices. Thank you F+ W Media.
You can see more paintings from this series on my web site HERE.

The Watercolor Artist deadline for entry for Deborah Secor's challenge is February 12. Read about working in a new medium or a new format and send in your painting. Deborah works in pastels but has written about her experience painting small works with gouache. Her web site is (look for her gouache work) and she has a blog.

Please invite your friends to watch Good Morning Texas live on Monday and see Canvas by Canvas members painting.
