As we enter the week of Thanksgiving, it becomes time again to remind ourselves for all we have to be thankful. As I look forward to being surrounded by family, friends, and of course lots of food, I would also like to reflect on the many blessings I have had throughout the year...as a full time working artist!
I was honored to have achieved Signature Member status with the Pastel Society of America. This sets the bar very high for an artist and I will continue to work hard at my craft to honor this distinction.
I had the privilege of working with many new clients this year through commission work and found each one to be a rewarding experience. House portraits, travel portraits, and other projects have been in abundance this year and for this, I am thankful!
This year offered many opportunities to show my work in prestigious shows throughout the Northeast, including New York, Connecticut, and Cape Cod, as well as with national organizations such as the American Artists Professional League, Audubon Artists, and The Salmagundi Club.
Another exhibition to be held at the Butternut Gallery where several of my pieces will be exhibited from November 25 - December 23, 2017. This will be the last exhibition for the gallery at its current location and I have been fortunate to have had them represent my work.
