Shaken, Not Stirred
Hello dear friends and art lovers,

We made it - 2021 is in sight! I am so grateful for all of the support you have shown me throughout the year. Artists just keep on creating, regardless of the "temperature" in the outside world.

I am quite excited that my painting "Shaken, Not Stirred" has been chosen as one of 8 finalists in the Jackson Hole Still Works vodka label competition. Believe me, the competition is stiff! I have always wanted to have my artwork on a label, though I think wine would be nice, too. I will look for another opportunity for that.

I NEED your VOTE (pretty please)! This year voting is online so people from all around the world can participate!!! This means you. 🙏 😊

The link to vote is: Though there is a $5 fee to vote - please note that 100% of the proceeds from the contest, including auctioning off the painting, benefit the WYOMING ARTS COUNCIL. You have until January 9. DO IT NOW!!!!! (Gosh, I am getting bossy, my apologies.)

The full painting is above, and the image below is how it would appear on the bottle. I created this painting specifically for this competition - knowing that the artwork distorts (enlarges) behind the vodka and glass, I planned it for the perfect explosive "geyser" effect.

Please share this info - The winner is decided by popular vote. I am probably the oldest fogey artist in the finalist line up, therefore the least social media savvy. Again, I so appreciate your support.

Tie Tracks hand painted vintage ties are still available. 😊 How about having a bit of fun on one of those Zoom calls, either business or a Zoom happy hour? They are very reasonably priced at $20 each. The BONUS is that I am donating one tie for every tie purchased, to a gentleman in need of a tie – to help dress for success. A few from the large selection are pictured below. Here is where to find them:

Sage green tie with cowboy boots
