Well, the December issue of the Artist's Magazine has been released and I can now tell you that the same painting has received an Honorable Mention in the Magazine's 30th Annual Art Competition in the figure and portrait category!

This is the first journal entry I've written on DA and seems like a good time to start. I received some exciting news the other day when I was notified that my painting 'Grandfather's Brass Bowls' has been accepted to the Oil Painters of America 19th Annual National Juried Exhibition! It will take place at the Legacy Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona, from April 30th to may 31st, 2010.
