Ninety-Eight and Counting

Before I forget (again), you're invited to my solo exhibition titled "One Square Mile" at The Burkholder Project in Lincoln, Ne. It's a collection of paintings based on a single square mile north of my town. I'm pretty pleased with the work, and I think you will be as well. Come hang out with me Friday, March 5th from 7-9 pm for the opening reception.

Also, before I forget (again), I wanted to brag a bit. I received Best of Show at the annual Wings Over the Platte Exhibition at Stuhr Museum in Grand Island, Ne. Based on the "competition", it's a pretty big deal to get noticed. I am pleased and honored.

I just realized that I've made nearly 100 posts. O n e H u n d r e d.
W o w.
Gosh, don't you think I should do something really cool to mark this occasion?
In two weeks, I will post my 100th missive. To tempt you to attend the party, I'm gonna give away treats.
If you, Dear Reader, post a comment, any comment, I'll put your name into my special hat. On the evening of my 100th post, I'll draw a name from said special hat. The owner of said name shall become the new owner of a painting by ... drum roll please ... Patricia Scarborough herself!!
It'll be an oil. Probably 5x7, or 8x10-ish. Probably pretty wonderful, no doubt.
So, I'll see you Friday night? And I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hiya! I plan on coming down to your reception on Friday. Can't wait to see more of your works in person!

Kaylyn said...

I completely missed the part where you won the Best of Show award at the Stuhr Museum. FANTASTIC!!! Congratulations!

I need to get up to Grand Island sometime. My Swedish great grandparents landed there and in Stromsburg before moving on to Colorado.

Congrats on your award and congrats on 100 Patty! Love those sunflowers, very Picasso-esque.

Nancy Medina said...

LOL - meant to say "Van Gogh-esque" Picasso would have put their noses sideways. : )

Karine said...

I will be there in spirit, Patty. You know I will.
Congrats on the best of show, by the way! You've earned it.

Mavis said...

Patricia, I came across your blog as I finished up an entry on my art blog. I am a pastelist and my work can be seen on my blog I just finished a weekend workshop for pastelists this past weekend and it is interesting to talk your way thru a painting to a group instead of working thru the painting in the privacy of your own brain! I have done quite a few workshops, but each is different and I look forward to them.
Have you come across Very comprehensive website for pastel people.I am adding you to my blog list and maybe you will take a look at my site as well. I live the SE part of WA state...a lot of your landscape is similar to parts of NE unlike the wet Pacific NW of the Seattle area. Happy painting...I like your work...

Chase!! So nice to hear from you. I'm honored to know you've been keeping track of me.

Pat, They make me smile too. It's like having my own little patch of sunshine.
