I am in the 42nd Annual PSA Show, Enduring Brilliance, and I won an award!


The feeling you get while wondering who won awards at the 42nd Annual PSA Show, Enduring Brilliance, that you have a painting exhibited in.......... anxious....

The feeling you get when the caller ID on your phone says "Pastel Society of America"....... utterly blown away, butterflies in your stomach......absolutely stunned...... excited.......

Needless to say I am so very thrilled, and honored to accept the Pastel Society of the West Coast Award for my painting "Why?". For me this is the fourth time I've exhibited in this show, but it is the first time I've won an award. I am utterly blown away, totally excited, and absolutely honored to have my painting surrounded by such incredible pastel paintings.

Thank you to the awards juror Marjorie Shelley, the Sherman Fairfield Conservator in Charge, Metropolitan Museum of Art. Also, thank you to the Pastel Society of the West Coast for sponsoring the award, I am so very honored. And thank you to Jimmy Wright and all the members of PSA that helped to organize this amazing show.

Yup...... I'm excited!!!!
 
Here is my painting "again", I know I've posted it here, but what the heck!!!!
