I'm absolutely thrilled to report my painting "Full House" received the Canson Excellence in Arts Award at the Pastel Society of America's 42nd Annual Exhibition, "Enduring Brilliance." The super exciting part for me is that winning this award has given me MASTER PASTELIST status with the PSA!
Ever since I started entering this show (this is my 5th year/3rd award), I've wanted to go back to NYC to see the show in person. Unfortunately, I was never able to go. This year, I actually planned ahead, kept my schedule clear, and bought my tickets. The fact that I won this award and Master Pastelist status is just icing on the cake! I can't wait!
The show is being held at the National Arts Club in New York City from September 2 to 27, 2014. I'm so looking forward to seeing the show and meeting new pastelist friends. And gallery hopping in NYC!
