This past weekend, I was in Oswego, Illinois and I won the purchase award. The Village of Oswego purchased one of my paintings to put on display in their governmental building. What an honor! The last award I won was an honorable mention for some alternative process photography that I entered into a competition at the St. Charles Artist Guild right out of college. I was starting to get a complex. So, thank you Michelle, Erin and Village of Oswego!
The painting they chose is called Balance. It is a 32" x 24" painting about how I am constantly trying to find a comfortable balance between taking care of my family and taking care of my art career. I will probably figure it out by the time my kids move out and then I will need to make a painting about adjusting to life with out my children in the house!
