As I begin to pack for my upcoming 5 day workshop in Tuscany, Italy, I'm struck with just one little twinge of sadness. I'm going to be so close, yet so far away from Barcelona, Spain. What's happening in Spain that could bring even one cloud to my sunny Tuscany days? My painting "String of Pearls" is exhibiting at the MEAM (Museum of Modern Art Europe). She is a Purchase Prize Winner in the the 13th Annual ARC Salon. ARC is the leader in the movement to bring realism back to the main stream art world. Through the Art Renewal Center, they invest heavily in modern masters, sharing high resolution images of master works, approving and supporting quality ateliers (painting schools) around the world, providing skill-based art instruction curriculum for schools and scholarships for students, the list goes on and on.
It is such an honor to be included. You can see String of Pearls in the beautiful image from the MEAM below. I wish I could participate in the awards ceremony tonight, as I did last year when "City Blues" was awarded and collected by the ARC.
Forgive me for being so greedy to be awarded and honor in such a real and meaningful way and still want more. But I cannot help it, I do so wish I could be there to attend the opening and see all this great art! Tonight, I'm in Lee's Summit, Missouri but my heart is in Barcelona, Spain.
Congratulations to all the phenomenal art in this year's ARC Salon.
