Red Suspenders Receives the Silver Medal Award at OPA Salon show

What an incredible honor to receive another amazing award this year. My painting, Red Suspenders, received the silver medal award at the Oil Painters of America's recent salon show. The show runs from October 9th - November 5th at the Beverly McNeil Gallery in Birmingham, AL. I am truly honored and humbled by such recognition these past few months. My deepest gratitude to awards juror Calvin Liang for  giving me the honor of this award. I am grateful for the support and encouragement. A special thank you to my wonderful model Reagan, for being so eager to be captured in one of my paintings. He and I both loved creating a old time feeling in this painting, ultimately capturing a sense of the past with the nostalgic feeling of his attire and a sense of the future the image of youth and dreams.
