I think I posted this one a while back when she was finished, but wanted to re-post now that she has her first award! "Golden" has won the Terry Ludwig Pastel Award at the the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod annual exhibition For Pastels Only on Cape Cod 2017. A big appreciative thank you to Jacob Aguiar, judge of awards, and to Robert Carsten, juror of selection.
The show continues through July 16, 2017 at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, South Yarmouth, MA.
(If she returns unsold from Cape Cod, she might be on her way to Italy this fall! More on that later!)
