My art returns from Dili, East Timor

Two years ago, I heard about  a program run by the US State Department that selects American art to be hung in US embassies around the world. How cool is that? So I sent in a submission of my work to the curators and was thrilled to be quickly contacted and invited to have my work hung in the Ambassadors residence in Dili, East Timor. Of course, after the first whoop I had to look on a map to find where the heck Dili, East Timor was (it’s near Indonesia). These are the pieces that went on this exotic trip:

Life Goes On II

Touch II

This program also produces a beautiful full color catalog  documenting the artwork selected for each location. It’s then offered to embassy visitors.

The Ambassador has returned to the US so my work was delivered home this morning.  What a wonderful use of tax dollars! Spread art!

    Hi. I’ve told you this before but I have to say it again. I love your work. It’s really beautiful and there is something about it that really speaks to me. I have a painting that I did in your honor because the idea came from one of your pieces.

    That is fascinating that 2 of your pieces were selected to be hung in Dili, East Timor….I will go look at a map tonight – I have NO IDEA where that is….but they are lucky to have your work. Congratulations.

      Wow, Terry, I’d love to see an image of that painting that you did! Thank you, I’m honored.
      Of course, I also had to look at a map to find East Timor. (Hint: It’s near Indonesia)
