I was thrilled Sunday to be the recipient of TWO awards for my works in the Austin Pastel Society's Juried Exhibition.
"Ian at Breakfast" won 2cd Place Portrait (and a 78 pc Masterclass Assortment of Great American Artworks pastels!)
"Reassurance" won 3rd best in Show (and 72 new Jack Richeson Handmade pastels - the BIG round ones! - Whoo-hoo!!)
(I LOVE the Austin Pastel Society, they always have such awesome awards!)
The show was possibly the best one they've had yet. It continues at the Chase Bank Building Corredor of Art, 7th & Lavaca in Austin TX, through May 2, 2009. To see a preview of the exibited works, click here. To see the award winners click here.
Thank you, Desmond O'Hagan, for being an excellent judge and juror!
