Blue & Red Ribbons

!st Place

1st Place

As an artist I find joy and great pleasure in the process of painting. 

Dipping the brushes into water and color pigments, making shapes  of color on clean white paper is thrilling.


I can bring to life all the images I have on file in my memory vault.  Pictures of people, places, colors and shapes that gave me not just visual beauty but an emotional feeling as well. As I compose a painting I’m thinking of what I want you to see and feel as you view my art.


Over the Memorial Weekend I entered my art into the South Bay Art Associations 52nd annual members exhibition. I am proud to announce that I received a Blue Ribbon for 1st Place and a Red Ribbon for 2nd Place. Being part of this talented group of artists is very rewarding, receiving recognition from this show is humbling.  So many outstanding pieces of artwork on display.  To have mine adorned with ribbons overwhelms me and I am very grateful.
