Time of the Sandhill Cranes in Energen Art Competition

Good news! "Time of the Sandhill Cranes" was accepted  into Energen Corporation  12th Wonders of Alabama Art annual competition.   You can visit with the artists on Sunday afternoon the 27th.  The show is at Energen Plaza in downtown Birmingham which is on display and for sale from March 21 thru 27th.     The art competition celebrates  Alabama artists. Five winning entries will be purchased by Energen and will become part of Energen’s “Alabama Collection”, which is displayed at Energen Plaza, the company’s headquarters in Birmingham, Al.   A portion of the proceeds from the 2011 Energen Art Competition will benefit The Jimmie Hale Mission.
I painted Time of the Sandhill Cranes after one of those freezing snows.  We have the Wheeler Wildlife Refuge here in Decatur, and the Sandhill Cranes gathered in tremendous numbers this year.  This is some of the icy backwaters at the Refuge. 
Hope to see you Sunday the 27th.
