I'm beside myself to announce that my work "Aria" (as seen to the left) received the "Pioneer in Realism" award at the 7th Annual International Guild of Realism Exhibition.
To be included in an exhibition with so many established and masterful artists is a tremendous honor alone but to be recognized for such an award among them is amazing to me! Wow. Just wow!
I would like to send a very big "Thank You" out to the person who purchased "Aria" and I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did creating it.
The exhibition was held at the Jones & Terwilliger Gallery in Carmel, CA during the month of September.
As much as I wish I could have been there for the opening reception it just wasn't possible this year. However, the guild has so graciously produced a short video of the event and you can view it below.
