First Place Award for Still Life at the Art Renewal Center Salon

My painting Bottle Collection has been awarded First Prize in the Still Life category at this year's International ARC Salon.

I have been poring over the annual catalog of this competition for years. Last year to have my work included in the Top 100 was a dream come true. This year's recognition is beyond my wildest expectations.

Congratulations! I always spend hours going over the Salon paintings whenever they are announced every year, such fantastic art, nice to see yours at the top. Another blog I follow is that of K. Henderson and she announced a third place with one of her paintings and another included in the top 100. Really great work by you and K. both!
