Entry - Oil Painters of America 2020 Eastern Regional Juried Exhibition - Reinert Fine Art, Charleston, S.C.

I'm pleased to announce that my painting "Tapestry" has been accepted to the Oil Painters of America's 2020 Eastern Regional Juried Exhibition at Reinert Fine Art in Charleston, South Carolina. The show will run from November 20th through December 19th.

This painting was inspired by the rich floral works of Maria Oakey Dewing and by a Jules Bastien-Lepage piece, "Joan of Arc", at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

While my subject matter is completely disconnected from that of Bastien-Lepage, which was not a floral, I found something fascinating in the tapestry like richness to his work, featuring varied textures and patterns throughout the painting.

Sometimes an inspiration leads to something completely different.
