I submitted this painting to the MAPAPA (Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association) member show--part of the Paint Annapolis event, and won 2nd place! Happy about that.
Also the above painting of Bermuda made me one of the 12 finalists in Raymar Art Contest for last month, August 2009. Pretty exciting to see my painting on their website, together with some great paintings done by some big name artists! The grand prize, $10,000, by the end of a year (August 2010), selected from 144 finalists (12 each month) is a big draw. Every artist, starving or non-starving, could use that kind of money! But being a finalist is already good in itself. So I'm happy.
