I found out today that my painting "Before the Rush", which was accepted into the Newport Art Museum 2009 Annual Juried Exhibition just over a week ago, received an Honorable Mention! I was thrilled to be accepted into the show, but to also get an award was fantastic! I'm just sad I missed out on the award ceremony.
I have to keep up the good work, though, and there are a lot of open exhibitions at this time of year. Right now I'm working on a painting for the Art League of Rhode Island show in March, then once I'm finished with that I have to start on some florals. Not only that, but I'm also renting space at the Portsmouth Arts Guild for 8 months, starting in April, so I need to get cracking on some new pieces!
