Contest Results & Other Things (Updated)

My photo (from the last post,) won week 5 in Superstation WGN's "My America" contest. Thanks to everyone who voted--I appreciate the support! Much else has happened through the past week. I created a new painting that was inspired by a photo I took years ago;

"Autumn Hillside"
24x12" acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas
Unseen here are metallic gold highlights amongst the leaves (both in the trees & on the ground.) Sold Nov. 7, 2009.

Charles had another book published! This one's a non-fiction work on the craft of writing. I'm very proud of him & am doing what I can to help with promotion. He's already scheduled a talk & signing at the Causeway branch of the St. Tammany Public Library in September.

Yesterday I spotted 2 juvenile towhees out back. An adult pair was among our "regulars" before Hurricane Gustav last year. After the storm & the resulting local flooding, all of the ground-based birds were just gone. A brown thrasher appeared a few months ago, but we only started seeing an adult male towhee around again in the past few weeks. I'm very happy to see the fledglings now & hope that they'll rejoin their place among our "regulars."

July 28th was Rick Wright's birthday. RIP, Rick. We lost you too soon.

Nice painting.

Reminds me of some of the background art for the movie "Kung Fu Panda".

And congrats to your photo winning week 5 of the contest.
