“Easy Bein’ Green” has been accepted in the Colored Pencil Society of America’s Explore This !17 online exhibition. It won the Lyra Award for Distinction ($500 product ). As well, I earned CPX signature status, having been accepted in 3 Explore This! shows, which highlights artists from around the world using coloured pencils and other media in their work (in this case I used gouache, an opaque watercolour paint). Check the show online at www.cpsa.org.

I was delighted and honoured to have my coloured pencil painting “To Make a Long Story Short” named the first prize winner in this year’s Figureworks 2105 art exhibition. The painting depicts my mother-in-law gazing out her window into what could be her future or it could be pondering a life richly lived….you decide.
