Lesson 1, 2016, acrylic on canvas, 48″ x 48″

I’m very pleased to be included in the New Acquisitions exhibition at the University of Wyoming Art Museum. This particular painting, Lesson 1, I feel is strongly influenced by my surroundings here in Wyoming, so I can’t imagine a more appropriate place for it to live than the University Museum. Also, it makes me very happy to be a small part of the legacy that the great Susan Moldenhauer (museum director and chief curator) will leave behind when she retires later this year.
