Well, it's been a pretty good month or so.... I won the Savoire Faire award at the Pastel Society of America for my Variation #6, I received an honorable mention for "In the Studio" in the Pastel Journal, Pastel 100 still life catagory and I received third place in the IAPS web show for my piece "Green & Blue". WOW!!! Don't mean to gloat or anything like that.... Thanks for all this support and validation. It truly is tremendous!!!
