Best of Show!

Extreme thrill on Friday night when I walked into the Fallbrook Art Center and saw that my pastel
 "Passion Flower Birds" won "Best of Show"....!!

I was very proud that this pastel painting was worthy of such a grand prize.  I enjoy composing an odd assortment of shapes in my still life paintings. The clay bird on the left is from Acoma, New Mexico. I bought it from one of the artists on top of the mesa in the village built on solid rock. I found the ceramic corn bowl in a thrift shop. Corn shapes are intriguing to me, as a metaphor and symbol. I grow passion fruit vines in my garden. The fruits are quite bright towards the end of summer.
My painting has a prominent spot right as you walk in to the center. Come see the exhibit ...for the next two weeks only......
