Oklahoma Love

Today I was thumbing through the Oklahoma Gazette and they are having a vote for 'The Best of Oklahoma 2009.' One of the categories is "best visual artist." I hadn't heard of any of the nominees (and I consider myself and artist? Shame on me!) but I was a little disappointed there weren't any women on the list. I did check out each of the candidates and Paul Mays gets my vote. His work is lovely. I adore his use of pattern, color and texture.

It's nice to see such professional, contemporary art being produced in Oklahoma. I've never doubted that we had it in us it just seems few and far between.
