Wow! What a great year it has been! I have painted almost daily and am loving it more and more... I have been in a number of shows, recieved 2 scholarships which afforded me the opportunity to learn from Matt Smith twice - en plein air and in the studio. I tagged along on one of Phil Starke's painting expeditions which took us up to Wyoming where I had a chance to paint the Western Mountains and watch a true master paint. This week I got word that "Arroya Rosa" has been juried into the Empire 100 Western Show and Sale for 2012 ( my second year), and am honored to hear that the Arizona Plein Air Painters have selected "Fearless" for their advertisement for the April 2012 edition of Southwest Art Magazine! I am a blessed man, not just for the strides I have made in art this year, but because of God's great love and mercy. I look forward to 2012 and the continuing journey..... -Jeff Love
