"Art of the National Parks," Fine Art Book to be Published

I am thrilled to announce that, for the first time, my work will be included in a fine art book titled Art of the National Parks, published by Fresco Fine Art Publications, early 2013.  There will be ten National Parks featured.  My artwork will be featured in the Yellowstone/Grand Teton National Park section, along with 8-10 other artists I greatly admire including Clyde Aspevig, Ralph Oberg, Jim Wilcox, Carole Cooke and Scott Christensen. The book is co-authored and curated by Jean Stern, executive director of the Irvine Museum in California, and Susan McGarry, former editor of Southwest Art magazine and current director of the Plein Air Painters of America.  It will be sold through Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and national museums among others.  There will also be a group exhibit for the participating artists in proximity to the Parks either summer or fall of 2013 once the book is published.

This is such a great opportunity and I want to share it with all of you!  I will spend the third week of June traveling to Jackson Hole, Wyoming to paint the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks for this book project, and will be posting updates on my blog while traveling and painting so you can see the process as well as the finished pieces.  I have already created and posted some studio work from last fall's trip to Wyoming that may be included in the book.
