The Miniature Paintings of Wes & Rachelle Siegrist

News for Friend!

May 2019 ~ Next Issue: June 2019 

 Shows Are Open and We're Having Fun!

Dear Friend, 

Many shows open this week that include our paintings in them available for purchase.  We've been participating in some of these shows for decades now and are honored to be repeatedly asked to participate again from those that are invitational in nature. We're also both working on commissions including another that will be a tandem work featuring our resident Carolina Wrens.

While Wes has been really busy in his stead as the Society of Animal Artists (SAA) Executive Director we've still managed to find time to finish painting our bedroom and bathroom as well as some closets - it feels GREAT to break out the BIG brushes and rollers sometimes vs. our teeny weeny paintbrushes! We've also taken advantage of some lovely weather to go hiking, kayaking and camping nearby in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

This next week will find us in Chicago working with the SAA and having fun with fellow members.  After months of work, it's time to jury for the upcoming exhibition and have one of two annual Board meetings.  You always learn when you are with your fellow artists so we're eager to be together again and looking forward to the time we get to socialize too!
