Hi Charles, I love your 'Fossil Hunters'. It should have won first place! I'm one of those odd birds that generally does not care for landscape paintings, however this one is a scene stealer. The colors, the composition and as best I can tell on line the brush work are delicious. As luck would have it I'm visiting Nashville next week and I hope to come by the 'Local Color' gallery to see some of your work. I too am an artist and enjoy visiting art galleries on my travels.
