I’m in this Purely Pastel Juried Show of the Connecticut Pastel Society, which had its opening reception last night in Lyme, CT. My painting above, Catkin Bursting in Spring, received an Honorable Mention, which was my first cash award ever in an art show. It’s a start!

I wasn’t thrilled with the placement of my painting, which was below another one so you had to look down on it. Otherwise, there was some nice art in the exhibit, as you can see in the photos below in this post. My favorites are the first two below.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
