Pastel 100 Award

Submitted by Gary on Wed, 02/20/2013 - 13:12

After many years of submitting what I felt was my best work, this year I have been awarded an Honorable Mention in the prestigious Pastel 100 competition. The event is sponsored by Pastel Journal magazine, the unofficial voice of the pastel artist community. The March/April 2013 issue will feature all the award-winning paintings. My award is for Early Snow, Lake Creek, which was entered in the landscape category.

I'm so humbled to be one of only 20 awarded paintings chosen from among over 1250 of the best pastel landscapes entered in the competition. My appreciation goes to judge Liz Haywood-Sullivan and the editorial staff of Pastel Journal.

Look for a half-page feature about me in the June issue of Southwest Art magazine as well.
