An Award and a Red Dot!

Award of Merit Winner!
Plein Air Southwest Salon 2014
Available at the Southwest Gallery in Dallas

If you follow this blog, you will remember that I had a busy weekend with two juried shows in two different cities this weekend. Luckily, both were in Texas (and within driving distance) and I was able to make the awards ceremonies of both….

And so glad I did! It was reward enough to be included in these shows and to see dear friends... but to win an award AND sell a piece at the Plein Air Southwest show was both affirming and validating! I am one happy painter! Thank you for letting me share, and thank you for your many kind words of encouragement!


Jill Carver, the juror for this year's Plein Air Southwest Salon, shared some personal insights before presenting the awards. She is a true master and her thoughtful comments inspired us all!

So happy for you Laurel! The show is on my road trip list. I didn't know that Jill Carver was the juror - she's awesome too. Sounds like your 'tour of openings' was wonderfully reaffirming - well deserved.
