Woodmere Museum award




Hi All, I was very pleased to find out that my portrait of Nancy Bea Miller won the Lloyd and Pear Van Sciver Award for best work by a Woodmere member. It's only a regional show, but I was very glad to receive the award since I (and everyone else around here) enters their annual juried exibition every year, and I've never won anything before!

Here's the link to the portrait in the Unveilings section:

And below is a photo of the subject of the painting, Nancy Bea (who is also an artist) and myself, standing in front of the portrait.

Thank you, Allan, Linda, Cynthia and Lacey! I really appreciate your support. It has been frustrating (I'm sure many of you can relate to this) painting away, entering competitions, and NEVER winning awards--until 2005, then in 2006 I was totally surprised to win several, and now one in 2007! It is very exciting. As you say, Linda, I'm become "award-ridden" and it's almost embarrassing. But I am enjoying it nevertheless.

I was reflecting on the role the Forum has had in making me work harder and strive for better skills, and I think it has had a substantial influence on my work. There is a group of amazing artists on here, and it is inspiring to see your work and read what you have to say.

I somehow missed the unveiling of this, Alex. It is beautiful. That three-dimensional quality is awesome, on top of everything else. Congratulations!
