2018 Awards

Posted by on Aug 31, 2018 in News

12/7/18: I am honored and humbled to be awarded an Honorable Mention award this past weekend at the Plein Air Washington Artists show for my piece, “Cottonwood in Cow Pastures.” I had such fun painting this piece from Tillamook, OR among the cottonwood groves there. It felt like George Inness was right there next to me. It was magical. Four of my pieces were accepted into this group show.

 

 

You can see the my piece, along with many other fabulous paintings at “The Journey,” Presented by Plein Art Washington Artists. The show runs from December 1st – January 16th at the American Art Company, 1126 Broadway Plaza, Tacoma, WA.
