Take a minute and look at the new look of the gallery.  It has been given a wonderful updating on the outside.  The inside was already perfect.  It is not just an art gallery but also a museum.  You will be delighted.

SO.....she asked me to bring from 4 to 6 of my favorite works.  In the picture above you see portraits of my two children, Valerie and Paul.  The top picture is a portrait I painted so far back that I don't remember her name but she won first place in the art part of the White County Fair way back then.  The portrait of Valerie also won first place in a contest.  My favorite of them all, however, is the caricature of the whole Duncan clan.  Go to the exhibit and see it!! 

See if you recognize the members.

The gallery is a stunning building, that I'm sure adds to the feel of Searcy, Barbara.

Barbara, your art is enjoyed and appreciated by many, especially me.

I think the caractures are a hoot. On our last trip to Palm Springs, Mary and I brought art supplies to do some arcrilic painting. We each did a still life of a mum boquet celebrating the Chinese new year. We were going to do a desert scene but never got around to it. We had a lot of earth tone acrilic paints.
