Northwest Pastel Society Exhibition Award

My painting "Nap Interrupted" won the Past President's Award at the Northwest Pastel Society's 25th Annual International Open Exhibition.  I had three paintings accepted into the show, which is being held at the American Art Company in Tacoma, WA, until the end of the year.  The American Art Company is a large, beautiful gallery, and the show is excellent.  If you aren't in Washington and are unable to see the exhibit, you can go to the American Art Company web site and see it online.  Of course, the photos don't do the artwork justice and it is definitely worth seeing in person, if you can.

14" x 24"
Soft Pastel on Suede Matboard

My painting "Venice" is on the postcard for the show, but unfortunately someone at the NPS thinks my name is Kate.  I actually like the name Kate, and I don't mind it so much when it's on the web site and I can get it changed, but this time it's in print.  So if you've received a postcard for the show, and you're searching for Kate Tirrell, apparently that's me. :)

Congratulations, Kari!! It's so beautiful. I love the lighting!
It has happened to me, too (typo on my name in a published book). It's a shame. :(

Have a wonderful holiday season!

This just takes my breath away - it is stunning. Congratulations on your well-deserved award!

Thanks, Akiko! A book would be much worse! This isn't too horrible - I'd just prefer it if people could find me if they're looking. ;)

Thank you, Claire!

Congratulations Kate, I mean Kari. I so love your dog paintings. You really capture their essence. I can see why this won.

Thank you, Nancy - that's very nice of you to say! I'm glad you like my dogs. :)
