Last Light on Lomaki, one of my paintings chosen for the Sedona Arts Center Members Exhibition, won first place in the professional oil painters category! It was a nice honor to have three of my works selected for the event, but it was an added surprise to see that I'd won an award at the show's opening reception. The reception was quite crowded and the exhibit looked great. M.L. Coleman juried the event for the Art Center. The family made the trip to Sedona with me and we celebrated by dining out (Italian of course - the kid's favorite). In the photo Sarah and I are enjoying the moment. The winning piece is behind her and behind me is another painting of mine called Canyon Patterns.
