During 2007 I was invited to participate in a show for past award winners at the George Phippen Museum in Arizona. Today I was visited by Donna and Dale Burrill who recently inherited one of my older watercolor paintings from Donna’s deceased mother. The painting, “Desert Rainbow”, was purchased by her mother at the George Phippen Memorial Art Show held each memorial day weekend in Prescott Arizona. I painted it in April 1981, and she purchased it in May 1981. the painting is #107, and I am currently on painting #1041, so it was truly one of the earlier paintings. The painting looks great with no fading, and even the original mats are in good shape. The Burrills report that the painting fits perfectly with their Southwest decor and they are delighted with it.
