Notifications went out today on who made it into the Midwest Center for Photography‘s 10th Annual “TEN X TEN Small Works Exhibition” and I’m thrilled to say I number among the 26 international photographers who have had work selected for the show. “TEN X TEN” focuses on offering affordable works that are ten inches by ten inches in dimension, and sell for $100 each.
There will be a reception on opening night Friday, November 24th from 7-9pm at 1215 Franklin in Wichita, Kansas. Photographs are on exhibition in the gallery through December 31st, and are also featured for sale online.

If you missed your chance to check out my Texas Longhorns at the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts in Irving, you’ve got one more chance to see it in person. Some selected pieces from the 2017Irving Art Association‘s National Animal Art Juried Exhibition, including both of my Texas Longhorns, have been invited into the IAA’s Traveling Animal Art Exhibit and will be on display, and freely accessible to the public.
The Reception & Awards Ceremony for the 2017 Irving Art Association‘s National Animal Art Juried Exhibition was held Sunday, September 10th from 2-4pm at the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts in Irving, Texas. To my great delight my piece, “Texas Longhorn- II” was recognized with an Honorable Mention, which was accompanied by both an award and cash prize.
For more of Patsy photos from the Reception & Awards Ceremony, please visit the IAA photo Album on Photobucket.
For pictures of the award-winning art, you can see the Winners Gallery at the IAA’s website.

Things of Note:
Some Postal Services may require extra postage on the 5×5″ square shaped pieces of mail.
On the 5×5″ Metallic Pearl cards, because the inside of the card has the same paper treatment as the front, this means that it’s a bit tricky to write on. I’ve had the best success with Sharpie Markers (not to be confused with the Sharpie Pens), but you will need to give it about 10 seconds to prevent smudging.
Sunflowers – IV
2 designs to choose from in 5×7″ sizes:
Printed on 14 pt cardstock, with High Gloss UV Coating on the outside, the inside is uncoated to make it easier to write on.
Looking for some color to enliven your walls? These will be available for sale in my booth at the Foust Event Center during Main Street Days (May 19-21) in Grapevine, Texas. While I have variations of these at different sizes, these large format 16×16 inch prints on Fuji Pearl Paper are luminescent and presented in a 20×20 inch mat. They can be framed as a stand alone piece, or can be hung in a grouping together.
I hope you’ll swing on by. Admission is free on Friday until 5pm, afterwards while admission is required to come out to the Festival, there’s live music, a wide arrange of food and drink (including all sorts of craft beers!) and there’s a ton of fun things to do. There’s free parking and a shuttle offered as well. For more details, check out the city’s official page here for the 33rd Annual Main Street Days.
The complete Texas Longhorn series will be available as 16×16 inch prints on Fuji Deep Matte Paper, presented in a 20×20 inch mat.

My 5″ x 5″ greeting cards arrived. They’re printed on specialty metallic pearl paper, giving each card a shimmer (which I tried to capture in the video I posted to my Facebook page). The cards will make their debut at my booth during this year’s Main Street Days in Grapevine, Texas held May 19 -21, I’ll be inside the Foust Event space.
One card for $5, or five cards for $20 (tax included).
I am a big believer that no space is too small for art. Whether it’s your office in a row of cubicles, a locker, or a wee little nook, you can always fill it with things that inspire and move you.
In that spirit, I’ve put together a bunch of mini-frames, with 3×3 inch prints inside them of my photos, which I’ll be selling at my booth in the Foust Event Center for $10 a piece this upcoming weekend (May 19-21, 2017) at Main Street Days in Grapevine, Texas. Here’s a sneak peak of what’s available:
