My photos are not the best. It is hard to take pictures in a crowd of people. I highly suggest that you go to the Wessel Gallery at the Cincinnati Art Club the next two weekends to see these beautiful paintings in person. The gallery is open 1-4pm November 12-13, 19-20.
Sidebar: A BIG Thank you to Rhonda and her Sweetie for their help with my paintings at the GCWS Show at Evergreen. My 2nd place ribbon is dedicated to them because if they had not helped me I would not have achieved that honor.
