the weekend round up

Best in Show Brief
This weekend was the opening for the group show, 100% Pure Florida at Fifth Ave Gallery in Melbourne Florida. At the opening reception my paintings were awarded Best in Show. The prize is a solo show in June at the gallery. Needless to say, I am very excited and honored (and ready to get back into the studio).

I want to thank all of my family and friends for coming out to support me during the opening reception.  And to give a very special thank you to Marc Stone, who is the best friend and personal cheering section a girl could ask for.

Here are two images of the paintings in the show:

In other news my dear friend, Marcie Paper's work is up in Richmond VA at 1708 Gallery. She is an amazing artist so check out her stuff!
