Getting Ready for the National

This year the Afghan Hound Club of America National Specialty will be in Portland, Oregon.  It's been 30 years since the last time the specialty was in Portland.   It will be nice to go back.   This year I will have a boutique with all of my bronze work to show.  When I have to fly into the National Specialties in other parts of the country I am limited to what I can bring. 

First time showing in the Northwest will be "Full Circle" and "Fancy".   Both are lost wax bronze and one is life size the other is 1 1/2 inches.  Joining "Fancy" this year will be "Elegant".   I will be adding a miniature to the collection of 5 in a series at the AHCA Nationals.   Collect one or collect the whole series. 

Each miniature comes in a Rosewood box with their name on a brass plate with the number in the series.   The interior is white leather.   Quite a presentation for a little one.  

Also this year I will be offering all my giclee prints at a reduced price.  I will no longer be carrying these prints as I have a company named Fine Art America who does a fabulous job making the prints as they are ordered and shipping them out to the world.   You can order giclee prints on canvas, acrylic, metal and several different papers.  You can also have them matted and framed.   Also available are greeting cards.  Wonderful 5 x 7 full bleed cards.  

Be sure to check out my new finger painting designs.   While recuperating from my broken arm, I started painting with my left hand.   At nighttime I had to wear a special brace which caused quite a bit of pain the first hour so to pass the time I started doing these finger paintings with my Ipad.   Now I am hooked and while watching TV in the evening I am continuing to add to the collection.   Prints and greeting cards are available through Fine Art America, the link above.  Here are a few of my favorites, but check them out over 25 different designs so far.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Nationals.  I wish everyone the best of luck and hope that you will win an award and receive the Terry d. Chacon bronze medallion.  (offered in several categories through AHCA)

Also availabe in my boutique will be precious metal jewelry, new designs will be available. 
Until next time, PLEASE ENJOY THE ART!  Terry d. Chacon

Silly me, on the plein air front we have an exhibit in Banning from our years of painting Catalina.  Please stop by if you have a chance, it is up until Oct. 14. 2013. 

Also, I have published a new book with my past 8 years experience of painting on the beautiful island of Catalina.  You can preview the book at:
