Oil Painters of America Western Show 2010

"Parade Day"
Oil on Linen 8x10"

I am pleased to announce that my painting “Parade Day” was juried into this year’s OPA Western Juried show, which will be held at the Mountain Trails Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming from October 9th - November 10th, 2010.

Heli-painting in the Bugaboos:

I will be leading two heli-painting trips with CMH into the Bugaboos in early September. On the first trip I will be guiding and teaching a plein air workshop, on the second I will be guiding and assisting Robert Genn teach a workshop.

I flew into the Bugs with a couple of friends this week to get warmed up and do some location planning. This was one of a few pieces I finished while up there. (Watch for it on my website soon).

There is still space in the first trip (Aug.31st-Sept 4th). If you are interested in further details, please click here.


  1. Great light behind these little guys.

  2. Congrats, I bet that was nice news to come home to! :) Fantastic painting.

  3. Congratulations!

    What an amazing place to paint!

  4. Congratulations Liz. Love the painting. What type of group are these boys in?

  5. Thanks guys!

    Carol, this was done from a photo I took in Cusco, Peru a couple of years ago. There was a big parade that day, and there were quite a few different groups of boys in their school uniforms getting ready to march in the parade.

  6. I love the boy on the left and congratulations! And aren't you the adventurer!! Holy smokes. I just read the "details" page for your trip. It looks gorgeous there - I'm sure it will be a fabulous time. Your mountain paintings shown there are fantastic.

  7. Looking forward to having you back at the Bugaboos, Liz! The workshops will be great!

  8. Congratulations Liz!! It's a beautiful painting. I love the candid shot and the light is superb. I'm looking at all of those colour and temperature changes in the white shirts and it's reminding me of the class I took with you. :-)

  9. Congratulations Liz! Wonderful painting that you had accepted.
