Jerry and his TriState Photography group are having a show at Art on the Levee in Newport, KY. Here is the postcard with the information. If you're in the area, stop by and check out the photos - the show opens Sunday, November 1 and runs through the month of November. You can meet the photographers Saturday, November 7, from 4-9 pm. (That's George, our red-eyed tree frog, in the lower left corner of the postcard.)

Jerry has been working, choosing the photos he'll show and getting them matted and framed. Here they are, spread out in the sunroom. He may have others - they aren't sure how much space they will have so these are smaller pieces (11 x 14 and 14 x 17).

Jerry's postcard looks much more colorful than mine for the Viewpoint show - but it's an annual thing with different paintings each year getting in, so something simple to say it's their 41st year at this is how they do it.

Oh, and I was going to show you how the painting, Am I Blue?, looks matted and framed...Ken Bowman of Bowman's Framing in Ft. Thomas, did a great job on it. (It isn't 2 colors but apparently the warm color was coming from somewhere outside as I took this photo in the sunroom - there is some reflection from the windows, too...sorry about that). The frame is metal and there is a hint of the violet color running through it that matches the violet in the painting perfectly.

Rhonda, Jerry's photography is very impressive! I simply love the tree frogs. I wish him and his group the best of luck for their show.

The framing for your "Am I blue" is exquisite.

Thank you, Christiane, I will definitely pass that on to him :) The frogs are one of our own red-eyed tree frogs, George...and one from the Newport Aquarium he had access to during their gear-up to the Frog Bog displays - it's a clown frog.
I am happy with the painting and framing and hoping it brings me good good luck :)
