My First Award
Exciting news! While I was away on vacation a pastel painting I had entered in The Austin Pastel Society's North West Gallery Show actually won a Merit Award!!! Wouldn't you know the one show opening I couldn't attend would be the one in which I got an award. The idea for "Twilight's Last Gleaming" came from a photo I shot through the window of the car as we were leaving the Central Texas Pastel Society show at the Cultural Arts Center in Temple. There was an incredibly beautiful sunset that night which I really wanted to try to capture. Now I'm really pumped and eager to keep painting and improving.
