Honorable Mention

I entered a couple of works in the annual online show of the Oil Pastel Society, and was pleased to learn that my little plein air of blueberry fields (posted here in August) was awarded an Honorable Mention in the Professional category. I was also surprised , because of the amazing quality of the work that was entered.

(This one is now in The Dunes for the 2014 season)
"Rush Hour in Meadowbank", oil pastel, 9x11

I finished off 2012 with a couple of acrylic paintings. My son Mike asked for one of the Reversing Falls bridge, and this one took two panels.
And since we were helping him set up his apartment, I made a portrait of his old skateboarding sneakers for Christmas.
