"Your paintings need to be photographed better. The first one looks a little out of focus and the third has uneven lighting. And the styles look different. Not having a booth picture and not having done any shows only puts you in a position to apply…"

Larry Berman replied to John Henebry's discussion art hanging options
"Never use drapery hooks. Besides the cable hangers, look at strap hangers from Flourish. They hang from the top bars in the tent and the Pro panels or mesh walls act as a backdrop. Larry Berman"

Posted on March 1, 2018 at 7:00pm 89 Comments

Quite a few artists posted about their Krasl jury scores on some of the Facebook art show forums. I even received two phone calls from artists asking me to check to see if something was wrong with their images.

So many artists posted about receiving one or even two of the lowest possible score of a "1" out of "7" that it makes me wonder if the people doing the jurying knows what that means, or what instructions were given by the director.

We came across a pink mini cooper convertible and that became the new holiday picture. The car is 24x36 inches by about 20 inches tall. Xena is dominant in the picture with Elvis taking the back seat.…
