"Zach @ 10" Wins Blue Ribbon
What a fun night Saturday night was. I saw lots of friends, some I hadn't seen in years, at the opening reception of the Atlanta fine Arts League Exhibition at the Marietta Cobb Museum. It's such a great opportunity to exhibit in that beautiful space. You must get by to see the show. It will be open through June 26th. It was an honor to receive First Place among so many outstanding pieces. The jurors for the show were Karen and Neil Hollingsworth. Both are nationally recognized and highly accomplished artists. After the reception I got dance to my husband's band at a fundraising gala. It really turned out to be just a great evening.
I paint everyday life because I believe there is beauty in everything. I enjoy looking deeper to find the uniqueness that I know is there. I love the way light falls on the form whether it's a portrait, a still life, or a landscape. Mystery in the shadows or a story to be told is what I want the viewer to find in my paintings. How blessed I am to be able to create on a regular basis. Life is good. I hope you enjoy my work.
