And a bit of good news! Last night was the awards ceremony. The show is amazing with a wonderful diversity of style. I am honored to be selected to be part of it. To my shock and absolute delight I won an honorable mention for the painting "View of Cumberland." Here is a link to post.
Al Gury was the judge of the show and he was happy to take the time to speak with all of us about our work. He is the chair of the painting department at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. You are fortunate if he is your teacher! Look to his many books, of which I own one "Alla Prima." Check out this link to see it.
