Great News! I'm very excited to announce that my painting, The Journeyman, won best of show at the 13th May Show at Lakeland! I wasn't able to be there in person but I got plenty of pictures of the beautiful venue and great artwork from friends and family. The last time I entered work into the May Show was in 2019 also with a self portrait. That same self portrait appears in The Journeyman and shows some of the progress I've made over the last few years on my journey towards mastery. Thanks to gallery director Mary Urbas, juror Claudia Berlinski, and my mother for accepting the award on my behalf.
