NEWS: I will be featured in an article in Pastel Journal Nov/Dec 2016 issue titled "Ones to Watch". The article shows my recent painting, Plains Passage.
I am pleased to announce I have been elected an Associate Member of the Pastel Society of America (PSA).
* Newest Painting: SQUARING OFF
I'm thrilled to announce my painting "Plains Passage" has been accepted into the 28th IAPS Juried Exhibition to be held at the Salmagundi Club in New York City June 6 to 17, 2016. The IAPS Press release notes: "IAPS serves as the umbrella organization for all pastel societies and their members from around the world.

The Salmagundi Club, founded in 1871, is one of the oldest art organizations in the US.
I am happy to announce I have received an award for my painting "Sensing Difference" in Pastel Artists Canada Juried show on line now.
Dianna Ponting, juror for the show, had the following to say about my painting:
"The minimalistic technique of this wee painting speaks volumes
as does the pose of the mainsubject. To every viewer, there is a
different story in her stance. It is truly an art to paint a piece that
is capable of engaging the public in the thought process."

"Leanin' East" is a recent painting sold to a collector who loved the movement and texture I portra
yed. This piece was inspired by a trip to the Olympic Peninsula this past summer -- a wild and rugged place with high winds coming off the ocean...
"Tatanka is now hanging in our home in Framingham and looks
glorious! I just love looking at him...it is so gratifying and fulfilling
to look at your fabulous painting. To say thank you seems trite...
keep on doing your great stuff".
Sue K, Framingham, MA, "Tatanka"
