Artist Comments

The San Clemente Art Gallery reception went very well with some surprises.  Approximately 146 pieces of artwork were on exhibit and will be until the first week of January 2010.  Awards were given out that evening.  I was honored with two awards, one for each of my two pieces in the exhibition.
