My Paintings Framed

My daughter, Karen, artist and son-in-law, Ron, sent me these frames recently and I put two of my paintings in them.  Ron has a store in Santa Fe, NM, called Artisan-Santa Fe, where you can get all kinds of art supplies. Check out his site!
This was taken at the house on a table easel they sent me and the frame really makes my painting stand out!

I had already put this painting with the frame at River Chicks, downtown Vicksburg.  It really opens up my picture.  What a difference a frame makes!

My Picture Published

Bob Phillips was walking his dog near his Vicksburg home when he looked up and saw this sight in the sky.

I was so excited this morning when I opened The Vicksburg Post and saw in the Classified Section that my picture I took was published.  This is the first time for me!  My wife, Marian, has had several pictures published and a few months ago I picked up a camera like hers at a pawn shop.  Got a good deal on it! Now I'm taking pictures and must be getting good at it to have it published.  Marian also had one published in today's Sunday paper next to mine. Readers can submit photos to the paper and will be published, either because of their subject matter or their oddity, or the photographic skills shown.  It says to, give us your best shot and I did!

Today's Painting

Santuario de Guadalupe

100 N. Guadlupe, Santa Fe, NM 87501

Built in 1781 west of the Santa Fe Plaza, the historic Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe church is now an art and history museum. The Santuario contains the Archdiocese of Santa Fe's collection of New Mexican santos (carved images of the saints), Italian Renaissance paintings, and Mexican baroque paintings. Among the treasured works is Our Lady of Guadalupe, one of the largest and finest oil paints of the Spanish Southwest, dated 1783 and signed by Jose de Alzibar, one of Mexico's most renowned painters.
