Pastel Artists of Canada Online Juried Exhibibion

I am pleased to announce, first, that two of my paintings have been accepted into the 3rd Online Juried Exhibition of the Pastel Artists of Canada; and second, that one of them (La Jeune Boheme en Vert) has won an award and Honorable Mention in the competition.

I am just ecstatic about it!  Here is an excerpt from the notification I received from Kathy Hildebrandt of PAC, including commentary by juror Dianna Ponting:

“Congratulations! On behalf of Pastel Artists.CA it is my pleasure to inform you that you have received an award in the PAC 3rd Online Members Juried Exhibition.  Dianna Ponting honored your painting  “Le Jeune Boheme en Vert”  with an Honorable Mention.

Dianna also had the following to say about your painting:

‘The gestalt of this painting is what immediately struck me.  From technique to subject matter, all of the elements work but the whole is much more than the sum of its parts. A very sassy painting.’

Here are the two paintings:
