First Place - For The Love of the Moon Exhibit

I am so honored to learn that my painting won First Place at the Riverside Art Center's "For the Love of the Moon Exhibit", held in Neil Armstrong's hometown of Wapakoneta, Ohio, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.

This piece means a lot to me personally, because painting it made me feel like a kid again. It's the kind of subject matter that got me excited about making art as a child.

My thanks to the Riverside Art Center for including me in this very special invitational, and thanks also to exhibit judge David Stark, chief curator of the Columbus Museum of Art. It was a privilege to be a part of commemorating this great moment in American history.
