How exciting! Friday night, February 2, 2007, I received the "Best Use of Color" award for my oil painting Island Escape at the Center for Creative Arts, Yorklin, DE. This was one of five prizes awarded to adults in the exhibit "Winter Escape: Colors of the Tropics." The exhibit runs from February 2-23, 2007 at the Center in Yorklyn, Delaware. Judge Regina AaMacha's statement about the painting was "Remarkable use of color - Beautiful work!"
