I was invited this summer by the Société des Pastellistes de France as a special guest to exhibit my portrait work in the 2010 Festival International du Pastel de la ville de Feytiat and to Saint Florent le Veil at the Second European Congress of Pastel from July to September. Très bien! I led a delegation of Texas artists representing the USA. Quel honneur!

From our new found 
friend  Niall O'neill

On September 1, 2010, I was inducted in Paris as the American Ambassador of the Société des Pastellistes de France.  This is the oldest Pastel Society in the world. Founded in 1885 when artists like Degas, Puvis de Chavannes, Besnard, Levy, Helleu Gerveix, Chenet, and Mary Cassatt were involved in the revival of the Art of Pastel.

Summer 2010 we exhibited our pastel works in...more...
This is our friend Mike.  He accompanied his wife Mary Beth Martin to our trip to France and had to put up with us when we wanted our pictures taken.  Here you can see him holding three cameras and his own hanging on his shoulder.  I don't know how many more he had in his bag.

He's my icon for this exhibit since I decided to show  mostly photographs and videos I took during my trip.

He doesn't know it yet, but for this painting, I brought Mike to pose for me in front of the Eiffel Tower, with his shiny boots, his cowboy hat, and his colorful Texas flag inspired tie...I designed it myself. 

Thank you Mike!
My participation in the International Festival du Pastel in Feytiat and the Estivales Internationales in Saint Florent, France is mentioned in the December 2010 issue of Pastel Journal magazine.

This painting was accepted by the Public Art Board  for the permanent collection of the Frisco Heritage  Museum.

The inspiration came from a small sepia original kept in the archives of the Heritage Association of Frisco for which I am a lifetime member.
