I love these receptions at the Pacific Art League! I always run into old friends, meet new ones and fall in love with lots of paintings! Scapes was a big success, 35 paintings were selected from the 190 entries as far away as Connecticut. In addition to the first, second and third place awards juror Jim Caldwell generously awarded 5 honorable mentions, and I was delighted that my painting, Christy Ann’s Lace, was among them.
