Still Life Show Reception, The Art Guild Of Port Washington

In my last post I told you guys that I had three paintings hanging in the still life show at The Art Guild Of Port Washington.  We had the reception Friday night and I'm very happy to say that I won honorable mention for my painting, White Pitcher With Fruit.  Artist Leah Lopez was the juror for the show, so this was quite an honor for me.  I have been an admirer of Leah's art for many years and it was great to see her at the show and hear her talk a bit about art and her thought process on choosing  the award winners.

Not sure what my deer in the headlights look is about, but I was thrilled to see the ribbon by my painting. 

We had a great time at the reception.  So many people came to see the show which always makes it a lot of fun.

This is Leah's painting, Peaches.  I took this photo, but it is difficult to get a good shot as the juror has their own space on the wall and there is a spotlight shining on the painting. But it is an incredible painting and I urge you to click over to Leah's site and have a look around.  Her paintings are amazing.

As usual, thank you to everyone at The Art Guild for putting on a great show and reception!
