First show in NY

This is my first show (The Putnam Arts Council) since we moved to Mahopac, NY. I thought that would be a good way to connect with local artists as well as "testing the water". So I decided to submit one pastel and one oil painting. I was confident about the pastel painting being accepted. I wasn't sure about the oil one, since it's the first time I've submitted one in a juried show. But you never know: the oil painting has been accepted and not the pastel! So I'm looking forward to seeing the show.

Here the information for the show:
The Putnam Arts Council Juried Show, Fall 2011
521 Kennicut Hill Rd, Mahopac, NY, 10541
October 14 - November 11th
Reception: Oct. 14th, 6 - 8 p.m.

Congratulations! I am glad you are jumping right into the art scene in NY. I am not surprised that the oil was accepted; it really is a lovely work.
