#643 Prix de West, 2015 . . . con't.

Please see the previous two posts for more information about this blog.

Prix de West weekend is over and my work was well received.  Happily, sales were brisk for not only my work but for the entire exhibition.  This year, 99 artists presented over 300 paintings, drawings, and sculptures.  For more than 40 years the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City  has hosted the Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition and Sale, making it the nation's longest running contemporary Western art show.  This year marked my 27th year participating in the prestigious event . . .  the sculptures I exhibited this year can be seen in the previous two blog posts.

Below, are pictures, notes, and memories of the 2015 Prix de West.

Above and below, I was on a panel discussion about wildlife art, moderated by fellow sculptor, Walter Matia.
