In addition to painting commissioned pieces and pieces to be shown in galleries, I occasionally paint a piece specifically for an art contest. An example of this is my painting, "Coming Downtown," shown below. This painting is 30" x 40," and I painted it to enter the City of McKinney's "Unique by Nature" art show in 2013. I was very gratified that it won and was purchased by the City of McKinney.
