2018      

My display at the Herb Society of America in Austin several years ago prompted a call last winter from the editor of their journal, The Herbarist. They wanted cover art for Salvia, their theme for the issue, and this graphite portrait of the beautiful Autumn Joy is what I came up with

 In the spring I entered a contest sponsored by the Greater New Braunfels Arts Council and the Gallery at Gruene Lake Village. I entered my Pale Blue-eyed Grass and won first prize as Comal County Artist of the Year!
