What the Juror, Joseph McGurl, said upon bestowing an Award Of Excellence:
"Lively brushwork is interesting to look at in its own right. Great color choices. Nice, careful observation"
Honestly, I am thrilled. It is my very first award at North River, where I have been a member for most of 20+ years. Not that I can bring myself to believe what he said, being 1/2 Irish. But since I had my sons over for dinner that night, I couldn't make the Opening, and found out about my prize via Facebook. So you won't hear ME slamming Facebook! I also got the hours the show was open via FB, as it wasn't readily evident (to me, anyway) on the website.
So my friend (and fellow award recipient) Jody Regan was kind enough to re-enact the Awards Ceremony, and I had my Sally Field moment:
I do want to thank all of your who share my artistic journey, which is so very important to me, by reading, following, subscribing to and commenting on this blog. I never knew when I started it 4 years ago how much of an impact it would have on my art career, my friendships and... really, my life!
