artSpacific: Opening Reception

Today was the opening reception for artSpacific and was pleasantly surprised that my painting Frozen in Time was awarded the SDAG "Work of Distinction". This is my first award at a show and hopefully there will be many more in the future!

The one thing that I did learn/see at the show... is that I need to start bringing up the sizes of my paintings and increasing my body of work so I can enter more shows and galleries. I may be a little slower at producing these larger works (only get an hour or so an evening to paint) but it is now a goal of mine.

There is another show deadline in June that I am going to strive for four new paintings to enter. So... stay tuned!
