Winner of the Pastel Society of America’s 2012 President’s Award.

From the artist:

Sundown is one of those infrequent paintings conceived upon seeing a special landscape or seascape, but without a pencil, pad or camera handy to help record it.  The image sat in the back of my head long enough to complete itself.  Then it fell onto the surface with ease.

“Often, paintings that have “cooked” in my brain for long periods of time are my better paintings, and I felt that this was one of them.  I submitted it as an entry for the Pastel Society of America’s 2012 juried exhibition in New York, and was delighted that it received one of their top honors.”
