OPA Award of Excellence!
I am very happy and proud to announce that my painting "Sunday Morning Frost" has been given the "John Marion Pardy Landscape Award of Excellence' at the Oil Painters of America's (OPA) 19th Annual Juried Exhibition of Traditional Oils held at Legacy Gallery in Scottsdale, AZ.
This award is a special one, established by the family of John Marion Pardy, who was a lover of all things outdoors, who instilled a love of the land in his family, and who had a great love of art and music, traditional oil painting in particular. The annual award was set up by his daughter as a way to honor her father and the gift of these loves that he passed on to her.
That's a very special story and makes me even more proud to have been the recipient of it.
