Hello dear friends and art lovers,

THERE ARE ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT TO VOTE (until Saturday, January 9) for my painting, "Shaken, Not Stirred" which is one of 8 finalists in the Jackson Hole Still Works label competition - The link to vote is: I am told that the voting is quite close and competitive, so I am appealing to those who may have forgotten to vote yet. 😉 I have already heard from so many of you and I am overwhelmed by your support.

"Shaken, Not Stirred - The Movie" is now streaming! I hope you find it as fun to watch as I had making it. I condensed hours of video of the painting in progress into one short action packed film, complete with music, for your watching pleasure. I promise you don't have to watch paint dry, it is very suspenseful. "Will she drop her brush?" "Will she crush it or will she blow it?" Find out here:

If you missed the original newsletter, here it is in a nutshell, and please forgive the redundancy if you have already acted:

"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 - thousands of votes! I have always wanted to have my artwork on a label. This year voting is online so people from all around the world can participate!!! So do share this newsletter, if you wish.

The link to vote is: One vote per person is allowed. Though there is a $5 fee to vote - please note that 100% of the proceeds from the contest, including auctioning the painting, benefit the WYOMING ARTS COUNCIL. The owners of the distillery are big arts supporters. (The winner does get a cash prize as well, and their painting on the label of the bottle for a year. 🤗 )

Below are images of the actual painting, and 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.
