First Place & Artists Choice Awards - 2020 Lighthouse ArtCenter Plein Air Festival

I am so honored to have received First Place and the Artist Choice awards at the Lighthouse ArtCenter's 2020 Lighthouse ArtCenter Plein Air Festival

My thanks to event judge Barbara Stella, of Stella Art Conservation, and to all of my fellow artists who voted for me. My thanks also to Nancy Politsch, and everyone at Lighthouse, for all of your hard work to make this great event happen every year. I'm already looking forward to my workshop next year at the Lighthouse Artcenter Museum and School of Art.

Every year, I find a new spot to paint at the Blowing Rocks Nature Preserve in Jupiter Island, Florida, my favorite location in the entire state. This year, I was drawn to a massive sea grape tree along Maggy's path. The sunlight reflected off of the ground created a beautiful warm glow on the trunk of the tree. 

"Maggy's Path, Blowing Rocks" • Oil on Linen • 16"x20" • Available at Lighthouse ArtCenter
