“I am personally accountable for providing prompt, accurate, friendly, and cost-effective service to our customers”
That phrase, originally meant to be a reminder to some faceless phone bank worker while making and taking phone calls 8 hours a day, could also be interpreted as the phones motto. When plugged in, this phone will work as instructed. Dialing and ringing, over and over. No need for updates, apps or GPS coordinates. A simple cost-effective way to talk from point A to point B.
It has a real “ring-tone” to boot.
This is the last week that you will be able to see my and Martiza Jauregui-Neely’s paintings in the Art Windows of El Paso at the El Paso Airport.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted any works in progress. The last couple of months have been kind of crazy with going to Houston and getting a few of my paintings ready and delivered to the airport and city of El Paso. Oh and there was a job change in there as well. This is an idea I’ve had for a while so i’m glad to finally get it going.
I was honored to have been selected as a finalist for the 2013 Hunting Art Prize. My piece “All Tapped out in El Paso” was one of 1600 pieces from around Texas entered. The 3 jurors whittled it down to 109 finalists of which one is selected for the $50,000 prize. Hunting PLC also matches the prize amount and a total of the sales to a charity, last year the amount was well over $100,000.
This was my first time at the Gala and it was a interesting event. One of the highlights was meeting fellow El Paso artist Alexandra McGovern, whose entry was next to mine.
The event was well attended, giving the artists lots of visibility and plenty of networking opportunities. I had lots of interest in my piece, quite possibly due to having my own personal Vanna White:
Virginia and I had a blast and I will definitively continue to enter, who knows I might sell next time!
