I'm thrilled to report that my painting, "Into the Light," received The Glenna Hartmann Best in Show Award at the Glenna Hartmann Invitational in Santa Barbara, California.
Jean Stern, Executive Director of the Irvine Museum in Irvine, California and a recognized authority on California Impressionism, was juror for the exhibition.
I am thrilled to have received the Glenna Hartmann award. I felt fortunate to have known Glenna. Our paths first crossed in the Carrisa Plains in the early 90’s while painting. In the the years following we had the opportunity to participate in various paint-outs and exhibitions. The last time we painted and exhibited together we were painting for the 2007 Heritage Exhibition.
