My painting "Old Friend" won Best of Show at the Northwest Pastel Society 2011 Members' Exhibit!
The reception was very well attended (it was packed in there!), and I got to meet some people I have known online for a while but hadn't met in person, which is always fun!
There are many excellent paintings at the exhibit, but my favorite paintings of the show were by Sandy Byers, who won the NPS Director's Award for her painting "Symphony of Swans." Take a look at these paintings online and you will see how beautiful they are, but it doesn't prepare you for how absolutely stunning they are in person.
If you can get to the Kirsten Gallery to see the show, it's definitely worth it!
