Island Pines, 18"x24"

Good news, my piece Island Pines, which had been juried into the 5th National Northeast Pastel Competition, received an Ampersand Art Supply award! I was thrilled enough for just being accepted, so receiving an award is like the icing on the cake.

The exhibit will be open to the public from June 13th to July 12th at the Arts Center at Old Forge, NY.

Fantastic job and congratulations on winning an award! I'm another "wetcanvase-er", although I haven't posted in ages, I took a peek today and was excited to see a fellow NY'er who made it into the show. I'll be at the reception on June 12 also...!

Thank you all! Mathew , Congrats to you too on your new job. I hope you get the chance to paint!
Elaine, How are the furry ones doing?
Pam, wonderful work you are doing with scratch board!
Betsy, I'm very surprised myself. If you only knew how many times I've been rejected from competitions! I think it's a matter of trusting yourself and your work, of not giving up, and LUCK (in reverse order)!
Monica, Nice of you to visit! It's great that you'll be at the reception too!
