I am taking an inspiring course with the insightful artist Elody Gyekis who is mentoring a group of us to take our work to the next level. The monochromatic and color studies have been painted in the last two weeks while the portraits were completed prior to the class. ‘Cat’ won an award at the 93rd Juried Show at Phillips’ Mill. The award presentation was an awesome highlight of an otherwise difficult year.
I am getting ready for small works shows for the holidays. And while I was working so hard, I received good news: My painting, Play at the Plate won first place in the IWBC’s Women on the Diamond art competition.
