I’m truly honored to have been awarded TWO awards from the Light Space Time’s 12th Annual “All Women” Online Art Competition. Just under 13 months ago when I started drawing with pastels, I never could have imagined this moment. Hummingbird Moth won the Special Merit award. Per their website: “The art which was selected for the Special Merit Category is any art from the media categories that we believe could have also been placed in the top tier of those media categories. The only reason that this art was not selected for the top tier was due to the size constraints of this particular competition. Otherwise, the Special Merit art, in many cases, is interchangeable with any of the best art that we selected elsewhere.” Hummingbird Month was made with pastels on 10″x8″ dark grey Pastelmat.

Woodpecker on Perch won the Special Recognition award. Woodpecker on Perch was made with pastels on 8″x10″ dark grey Pastelmat. Reference photo by Gill Merritt. This is the second award that this artwork has earned. Though I get attached to most of my artwork, at this time I refuse to sell this artwork. I am however working on getting prints made to sell in the future.
