Master Signature Member - Oil Painters of America

It's great to start off 2023 with a huge honor from the Oil Painters of America, learning that I have been awarded the status of Master Signature Member.
 

The painting experience can be a wildly swinging pendulum, from the exciting sense of accomplishment after a successful piece, to moments of frustration when a painting fails, and you wonder if you’ll ever reach your goals. I’ve been an OPA member for two decades, so this honor means a lot to me, and goes a long way toward convincing me that maybe I should stick with it. My thanks to the fellow OPA masters who voted to include me among your ranks.
 
Here are all of the pieces that I have submitted to OPA shows over the years.
