Terry Ludwig Award!

My painting "Laundry Day, Venice" won the Terry Ludwig Award in the Pastel Society of the West Coast's 25th Pastels USA International Open Exhibition.  Terry Ludwigs are my favorite pastels, so I am over the moon!  I'm definitely having a good month. :)




You can see the show at the Haggin Museum in Stockton, CA from April 24 to June 19, 2011.
