This is my first post. I know nothing about blogging. I’m just gonna write something for today. I had the idea that a blog would be fun, but also promote what I’m doing in the world. So…here it is. You can read about me on the “About” page.
This painting was one of my 3 entries in the Cedarburg Plein Air Event last month. It’s billed as the largest gathering of artists in Wisconsin. There were 150 artists and 450 paintings in the show. This painting, “Port Washington Nocturne” came in 2nd place! I still think they made some kind of mistake. There were SO many beautiful paintings. I don’t know what to think. I think winning any award at the show was a dream come true, but 2nd place blows my mind. It makes me want to continue to paint and learn and paint and learn. I am very grateful that I was chosen. I almost feel like an artist now! This painting sold, but go to tomsmithfineart.com to see others for sale!
I intend to show paintings on this blog, but also to share music news, and stories that I have written or will write. Stop back!
