2015 is off to a very good start. we were in two art shows at the Visual Arts Center here in Punta Gorda, FL - and won two awards! it's such a wonderful feeling to have your work acknowledged by your peers.
it began in early January with the show The Art of Photography: Life Through the Lens -- and my piece: "A Gondola Ride" -- took 3rd place. the photo was taken in Venice, scanned into my computer, and "painted" with a pen/tablet. it's a process I call "Digitography".
The second show Wind and Wheels: Interpreting Motion opened Thursday the 29th. Opie and I collaborated for this show and entered one of our most favorite art dolls from our Who's Your Dada book: "Eight - Skate & Rotate" and she too received a 3rd place award. it was extremely exciting for our work to be recognized, as much of the art in Florida is very traditional -- and of course as you all know -- we're not!
It's wonderful being able to divide our time between The Berkshires and The Gulf Coast. both places are beautiful, exciting and filled with creative energy! we are truly blessed.
