I am so honored to be named Artist of the Year by the Los Gatos Art Association!
Here I am with awards chair, Vernon Dittenber, receiving my pretty blue ribbon. Playing in the background is a slide show of the history of the association which began in 1948.
While it’s a lovely award, I know that one vote more and I would have been sharing this honor with Rebecca Lillis White – who on the basis of modeling her self-portrait apron alone should have secured her the title!
Truth is, there are so many artists in our community that volunteer their time and talent to make a warm, supportive and inspirational environment for us to share our work and passion. I can easily pick out Artists of the Year by the dozen! That’s the real sweet success – belonging to a vibrant and caring arts community!
