January 2015 - As it turns out, at the end of last month I was put into "The Advocate" Magazine's "Best Art of the Year: 2014" list - WooHoo!  Such an amazing honor, especially from an important Magazine I have read, loved and even subscribed to for so long.  It states that the finalists were chosen from over 40 Editor's picks of the year's art portfolios.  This was able to happen because Here Media Editor Christopher Kit Harrity had seen my work on Social Media such as Facebook, and he had done a very nice online article about my paintings with a slideshow of 25 Images back in March 2014, and I'm very grateful.  Click on the image to be taken to the Advocate's site and see this as well as the other finalists!
