I'm happy to report that my painting "Retired" won the President's Award (1st Place) in the Northwest Pastel Society's 24th International Open Exhibition!
If you aren't local, but want to see the exhibit, go to the American Art Company's web site. You'll see the show under "Current Exhibits." The gallery did a great job hanging the show, so if you are able to see it in person, do try. It is so much more impressive in person than online.
